Spring Collages #1

I decided to do a series of four collages using frames that I got at an estate sale. I painted them cream with touches of robin egg blue. Then I did the collage in shades of blue, cream, brown and black. This one is titled, "softly, softly". I will post the next one tomorrow. I will hopefully have them on ebay this Sunday. Today was a beautiful day, but cool enough to get in the garden and do some clean up. And, I decided to dig up the chive plant that was in the garden when we moved here. I'd left it in the last couple of years only because I needed to plant around it first. Let me tell you, that was like wrestling with an alligator!!! I decided if I can't afford to put a plant in yet, I will put a stepping stone to fill the space. I just had to get rid of it, because it was the monster of the garden! No offense against chives, but it's a very invasive plant. And once it is done blooming, it gets ugly looking. If my garden does well, I will take some pix of it this summer. Well, bye for now! :)
