I've slept a bit since the 30 Day Challenge ended. All of those things that are supposed to happen did! I even cleaned and overhauled the studio.
I feel restored and ready to go again.
So, on Sunday afternoon, I went in search of some flowers at a local garden center, and luckily it was the final day of a "Bridal Open House".
I won't say I'm a regular customer in the same way I am at Dunkin Donuts, (yes, they pour my coffee as I walk through the door), but the folks at the floral shop do recognize me. On occasion, they will walk me into the cavernous cold box to see what's just come in from the Flower Market. They know I paint and we have an agreement: if a painting turns out well, I email a photo to the gal behind the counter. If they don't hear from me, well... they understand.
Which is a long way of saying that I scored some beauties just hours before Downton Abbey was to air.
These are a pair of luscious pink peonies, which I am sure would look just beautiful in Lord Grantham's study.
