Crazy Spring!

I planted some Jasmine several years ago, so that it would wind up the railing on our front steps. Usually, it doesn't bloom until June, but this year - it was in full bloom this week!

What's going on? Everything seems out of whack lately. Some things are blooming when they shouldn't and some things aren't blooming at all! GRRR - gardening just isn't for me!

My brother and his fiance will be here in a little over a week, and I was hoping that the Jasmine would still be in bloom (it smells just heavenly when you walk up the steps) - but I guess that would be too much to ask!

In painting news : I haven't been doing much of that lately -- kind been in a slump. Then, I found Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson, and ordered her DVD, and now I've come a little bit alive! Can't wait to try her technique for "Paper Painting"! She lives in the Orlando area, so maybe I'll get lucky and be able to attend one of her workshops. More on that later!

So glad to hear you've found some inspiration, Nancy, and I can't wait to see what comes of it. As to blooming/non-blooming/seasons/jasmine, I haven't a clue. Love the look of the jasmine climbing your railing though. I used to have such a green thumb and about 12 years ago it apparently decided to turn brown.
