The day always starts off so much better when you know you are going to have a haircut and the greys coloured. My wonderful hairdresser has matched my natural hair colour after experimenting for what seems years. It's a gingery, light reddy blond sort of colour, if that makes sense. Last night Miss G. asked me when I was going to make the transition to grey. WHAT???!!!! Not for a long, long time methinks.
Monday afternoon's painting class was wonderful. My teacher showed me what was wrong with the shape of my lady (shoulders) and gave her a much larger head. When you think about it, we do have big heads. Anyway, the photo below shows an improved body shape, more work on the background colours, the cupboard and the window in the top left hand corner. I've posted the previous photo too so you can see the comparison.
I'm loving working on this painting. After working for 9 months on flowers, it's hardly surprising I suppose.
Before going to the hairdresser to day, I popped into Bunnings and Spotlight which just happen to be very conveniently situated opposite each other. My purchases in Bunnings were plants.
I chose some larger pots of Alyssum rather than seedlings in the hope that the chooks will scratch around them.
I'm going to add these Impatien seedlings to the ones that have survived the winter. They seem to do quite well on the front veranda in a pot with no sun. I bought some Snapdragon seedlings, a flat leaf Parsely and a Rosemary plant.
Here is a picture of SUCCESS.
I have finally managed to get some Grape Hyacinth to grow and actually flower. Don't they have the most adorable little flowers?! And the colour is so pretty. These ones are in a pot, but I have some others growing in the garden. I have Cinerarias about to come into full bloom and will share them with you when they show their faces.
I haven't talked about Spotlight purchases which I'll leave for another post.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by,
