After doing some household chores, decided to have an hour in the garden after scrambled egg  lunch in the sunroom with Clive. Amazingly it was sunny and warm, so I sat on the wooden steps leading down to our tiny pond where I have this half barrel full of lillies, petunias and strawberries. Used my 11" square Hazel Soan watercolour rough paper block. As you can see, the barrel is falling apart!

I seem to be having real trouble trying to upload images onto the new Google Chrome set up, so I think I had better just refer you all to my flickr account for this watercolour effort:

Thats the reason I have not added any new posts of late - as every time there is a problem.

Try reducing the pictures to 500 pixels wide in the little Paint software programme on your computer. They will load up in a jiffy that way. S x (dodging the rain in Cornwall)

Very nice, Joan. I wonder how you could paint this without eating the strawberries:-)

Thanks Sandra - hope you are enjoying yourself. And Christiane - an hour later and I noticed the birds had helped themselves to bites from some of the strawberries, so maybe I should gobble them up!

Upload them to flickr then share to blog.
