I have a daffodil, I'm getting some broms for my birthday and must paint the bathroom roof

 How about that my first flower, I have had daffodils bulbs for years and this is my first flower I'm so pleased.
Everyone round here produces masses of flowers but for some reason I don't and I love these yellow flowers.



 Here are my broms they have all came from Barbs place so the do well in the cooler weather but it will show you, Joe what I have.






 My fruit tree has flowers so I will find out what it is someone threw a seed out the window and it just grew and because it's so narrow down the side of the house no one goes there, it's done well.

 My bathroom need painting, this very expensive mould free paint but they didn't say anything about peeling paint and it was painted a while back.
 I will have to con the beer fairy, I not keen on ladders or heights.
 While Angus was visiting I worked on his picture but his tail is hard to get right .

But that is his face.

  1. Hooray for daffodils. I love your bromeliads (which are doing much better than mine). I hope you can con the beer fairly. Ladder balancing is not my favourite past-time either.
    And I am in awe at your painting. Wow. Repeated several times - and that plume of a tail looks pretty good to me...

  3. I think you have the tail right! Have you considered painting directly ON the walls in your bathroom? I think you'd do awesome.

    Oh daffodils are always so happy somehow - congrats on the first!!

    I love your painting Merle! No mistaking that is Angus. I adore the 'chintzy' feel of your work.

    Oh dear - roof painting? Ugh. Hope himself is compliant! YAM xx

    1. Thank you I'm putting this one in my loungeroom when I get the beer fairy to cut the frame for me, I'm not good at measuring or cutting straight.

  6. Hooray for the first daffodil! I thought I could never plant any because the scent affects me, but elephant's Child has a hoop daffodil, pretty little thing, and she assures me it has no scent, so I have added hoops to my list of bulbs to buy for next year.
    Your painting is really lovely, you've captured Angus well. I imagine tails are as hard to paint as hands or fingers.

    1. I didn't know daffodils smelt but my yard is full of jasmine and that's overpowering and you can't smell anything else.
      I surpose they are like hands and fingers and they are very hard to paint.

  7. How fortunate for you to have a daffodil in bloom. I'm learning new things about you. I didn't know you were an artist and such a talented one at that. It's a lovely painting.

    1. I did art at school but never had time to sit and do much till now,it's very relaxing when things go right not so when they don't.

    1. I love the idea of a few beers and paint the ceiling, the mural would be modern art.

  11. That painting of the garden and the dog is wonderful. Does spring arrive a little early in your corner?

  12. Spring is very early this year, we had some very cold days in winter but they didn't last very long.

    Your painting is great..I think Angus' tail looks fine.
    Have you ever thought of illustrating a childs book, Merle?
    I reckon you'd be brilliant at it!

    1. How about you and Barb write the book and I will do the illustrations we might have a best seller on our hands, something about animals would be good, what do you think.

  16. I love your portrait of Angus! It really captures his sweet expressive face! Amazing that you can grow Bromeliads outside. Here they are sold as houseplants. So nice to have a daffodil - they are so cheerful. My Dad had an apple tree that grew that way - a seed thrown out the window. It will be fun to see if it sets fruit. Hope you get that ceiling painted. You might have to resort to bribery. Works for me. :) xo
