Rosehips and Iris reticulata

Cornflower in Yellow Jug

Blazing Tulips below Magnolia
This is a small, but very pleasing exhibition of paintings by Emily Patrick that's on for another week. I only had a few minutes to spare this afternoon but that was time enough to wish I had the money to buy one. No surprise that they were nearly all sold. I was dashing to meet a friend at the Royal Academy where, despite the 5* reviews, I found myself underwhelmed by Richard Diebenkorn. But you can't look and chat at the same time, so maybe I'm not being fair.

Aren't they just?

I know. I wanted to stuff one in my bag and make a run for it! Wish I'd allowed more time but knew the friend I was meeting wouldn't care for flower paintings.

It's worth the detour if you're in town, Miranda.

Roll on our date in the rose garden, Darlene!
