Three Muses - Words in Art

What a great challenge.  I decided on a quote - Always remember the beauty of the garden, for there is peace.  I used stamps of poppies I've had for a while, but just didn't fine the right project for.  I used the Twinkling H2Os to paint the background and poppies, but the colors just don't look quite the same.  Well, they're close, I imagine I'll have to break down and invest in a better scanner, but right now, I'm saving up for my son's wedding (the last one...finally!!!!) and probably for surgery on my right hand...I'll see the ortho on 3 May.  I really thought I'd need surgery on my spine, but the spine doc took a look at all the tests and determined the hand was in real need of repair or else.  I can't imagine how I'll manage being in a cast for 6 weeks or so if it comes down to that.  LOL...the family will probably want to ship me off somewhere...well, best wait for the hand surgeon to tell me what's what!

I love poppies, and the quote made me think of my mother. She loved to be in her garden at break of day. I know she found peace there. Thanks for sharing the beautiful poppies and the quote!

fabulous Lynn!
"poppy" is the name my stepson gave me, therefore poppies have a special place in my heart!

A lovely and cheerful garden, Lynn.
Don't get discouraged with your health problems. The recovery will go very smoothly and soon you will be in great shape again.

And to that say a big AMEN!! What a great quote and what a beautiful picture, Lynn. My escape is my garden. I think it has probably saved me thousands of dollars in paying a psychiatrist!! It can be a peaceful place or a very good place to take out one's aggravations by cutting and slashing!!
