Floral Friday Foto
Sky Watch
Pink Saturday

Are you one  who talks to your flowers?
Well, I'm one who gives 'em nick names:)

Peachy rainbow
from Huntington Library Rose Garden

 Pink Popsicles from my front yard

My nick name for these blurry (on purpose)
is Vanilla Muffins or Popovers

Seersucker Rose, Oil, 24 x 24 inch, ©StGermain

My painted rendition in oil  I called Cotton Candy Rose
from my Celebrity Collection of flowers

Orange Mango Sherbert

If you like to give them another nickname
go ahead and surprise me:)
See ya when I get back from vacation!

I love it!!!

My mom names her plants after who gave them to her, or what they remind her of ... there's the "Martha Tree", "Gramma's Roses", the "climbing tree", and the "Rosie Bush" and more. I don't even know most of them by their botanical names!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I really like this idea, because I never ever know the 'real' names of plants (I didn't even when we used to actually garden. As soon as we planted them, I forgot!)

Mama Zen said...

These are so gorgeous!

joanne said...

I talk to my plants, too....only worry when they talk back....

beagleAnnie said...

I don't name them but my mother did. She'd love your names. I especially like the Popover roses. That reminded me of my mother and how she would have laughed. Popovers were a specialty of hers. Thanks for the memory :)

The "orange mango sorbet" has always been my favorite. Something about that color combinations just makes me melt.

Thank you! Saturday was long past, but I hope you had a good one:)

Am glad you found me at Skywatch - so many participants that I sometime think it's not worth it. You proved me wrong!

Hey Jesh,

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment.
Your blog is neat. I enjoyed looking at your paintings. They are pretty!

I am study Radiography. I've been busy lately studying structures and functions of every part of the human bones. Going out with my family such as hiking and driving up to the mountain help me relax. I am also taking painting class too. I am enjoying it.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I love your nicknames! And the oil painting is just a mirror image! How lovely!

'Tsuki said...

hi !

I like very much the work you did on that picture of rose, and the way you explain here how you went from picture to painting is awesome.

I've answered to you question on my blog :

Sorry for the delay, I'm not home this week, and it is not always easy to find a internet connection, where I am.

Betsy Grant said...

These paintings are just gorgeous!
