Spring is here! But someone forgot to tell Indiana! I keep going outside and checking on my daffodils in my garden. They are starting to break ground and that is very exciting. Daffodils are my favorite flower, I have planted daffodils in every state I have lived in since I was 13 years old. I am kind of the "Johny Appleseed" of daffodils!
I haven't posted for a while due to my travels, some fun and some not so fun. My daughter and I went to Florida to join her childhood friend from Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brasil. We had so much fun. We had three five year old children speaking Portuguese and English and they had no problem understanding each other. We also had Pedro, an eleven year old who could speak English and entertain the little ones! Everyone needs someone like Pedro! I was shocked at how quick my Portuguese returned to me. It was a short visit to Florida and we just got home when my mother called to tell me that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. A week later I was back in Florida for two weeks. Her surgery went well and now my sister is down there helping her out!
I will be looking for more spring flowers to paint. Maybe pansies!
