Shades in red

The garden is creeping up now, bursting with colour and still 
promising more with the geraniums, bougainvilleas and some 
laurels which are quicker to bloom. What is frustrating this
 year is that the rose bushes haven’t given sufficient blooms 
but it has probably occurred because of the upheaval in the 
front yard. A new path has been constructed, soil has been 
added and they may have felt stressed somehow.
I wish we could get closer to the garden especially in 
the country where flowers hang their heads for lack 
of water and we aren’t able to remedy it on the spot.

The school year is wrapping up; students are allowed to count down 
to vacation which doesn’t mean that they will be totally carefree 
though. Some preparation in advance for more difficult or 
challenging topics will be necessary. I’m thinking about this as my
 daughter is graduating from elementary school and has to face
 a higher level of requirements. Do you have kids at this stage?

I would like to thank my dear blogfriend Jane Moller from 
true-colors  who so pleasantly surprised me with this 
beautiful painting despite the fact I wasn’t the winner of her 
giveaway. It's difficult to find the words to express my thoughts 
and feelings when “unknown” people can be so unexpectedly
generous and polite, friendly and bountiful.
Jane is an aquarellist, a talented painter, native Danish but 
residing in Milan for more than 30 years. On her blog, you can 
discover various painting techniques, she is so talented indeed! 
A hug Jane!

See you!
