Happy Outdoor Wednesday Fifi! I'll have a springtini!okay and maybe a sandwich! I'll have to watch the auction (and not bid)... I am in a budget! Thanks for sharing your photos.~ Susan

Fifi you have a beautiful garden. I forget that you guys can grow freesias out there --they don't like it here, it's too hot. Oh man, the scent of a blooming freesia is an amazing thing. Thanks for the photos!

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Fifi, That painting everyone gave their opinion on turned out fantastic. I like the black and white chair and the pink table. I thought pink but said red. PERFECT.
Your garden is lovely too. Can't wait for ours to get going. Soon.

The spraxis are such a delight. They look so happy it makes me wanna smile :-) I can also imagine them as a flower accessory of a pattern for a dress!

Would also love me some Spring dessert!

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

Lovely, lovely paintings and pictures! But just like Susan, I'll have to pass on the auction; we're on a "spending" hibernation for another month... Hubby's orders!

Good luck at the auction!

The Springtini is just what I have been needing...where is Petunia? is she passed out somewhere, perhaps due to too many of this refreshing drink?

Petunia said...

Dearest Fifi:

Oh, Spring has sprung and I am in love! What a delicious feeling it is! Don't get me wrong, it is not with a man but with all that is fabulous in life! Soon we will be jetting to Paris and who knows what lovely adventure will be awaiting me and what his name might be!

Your Springtinis were just divine...and please be sure to let Violet know that I did not "pass out" anywhere! I lady doesn't do that or at least if she, does not remember she has so there is no way she could say that she did! I do love a little springroll and yours were quite delicate and delicious.

One day I will have to come and stroll through your gardens with you. You would like that, wouldn't you Fifi? I know you would love to paint me in that setting.

Sincerely,
Petunia who would love to play with a little paddle...anytime!
