The Slippery Slope of Spring

Spring officially began on March 20.  I decided to get a jump on it by going to Bellingrath Gardens to see the azaleas.  Although the day was overcast when I visited Bellingrath, I still saw gorgeous flowers and fountains.

I did not anticipate the rush of impulse to beautify my back porch and yard after my trip to the gardens.   Before I knew it, I was poking around in my local garden centers and bought some pretty pansies and petunias from the Robertsdale trade school students.  The pansies became a whimsical headpiece for the Grecian bust I found at Tuesday Morning.
Suddenly, I ordered the Tuscan Garden Fountain online from Lamps Plus.  All 54 inches of it!
Now I will begin to dig out bed areas near the porch for who knows what.   And the domino effect begins!
At least I can use my various purchases as models for current and future paintings.
