I can't believe it ~ The game camera at Lake Jean captured a shot of a fawn! I expected it to be a few more weeks before Mama took Baby to the lake.  It's a little grainy, but I had to show you anyway - enjoy!

My beautiful picture

Spring Wildflowers and Cactus - oil painting, Patio Flowers, Hummingbirds

Jean Levert Hood, ©2010, Spring Wildflowers and Cactus, Oil, 10 x 20 inches 

 Spring Wildflowers and Cactus, detail
There's a section on the patio that I like to let go natural each year. I generally regret this decision deeply later in the summer, but I can't help my self early in the spring!  I love to see what will come up and I love the look of un-manicured growth.  This area is filled with very dense basalt rock, rich with browns, grays, blacks, reds and greens.  It really makes a pretty show until it gets totally out of control.





"Totally Out of Control" will be coming very soon.

Here's a very happy Hummingbird:
