I am loving these shades of blue...where will this picture take me? I have not yet convinced Hubby that the front courtyard gate would look AMAZING azure blue. This has been difficult. Much more difficult than I had expected. I hate that. I'm thinking I may need to start with the front door instead...he never said I shouldn't paint that blue. (Do I sound like a bit of rebel? Well, I am. Mama always taught me, "It's better to ask for forgiveness than permission." I cannot help it...it was the way I was raised!) I have been needing a bold color lift for the front door for a while now. Enough with this "safe" green color! Time to let my hair down and paint, darnit!

It is now officially the yuckiest time of year in AZ. It's hard to go out in the yard because everything looks barely alive, burned out, faded. The roses are getting smaller and scarce, the tomato plants look like death. My orchid tree looks like it can't decide if there's even a reason to live or not. My poor plants. I hope they can pull through these next couple of months. Time to turn my focus to the INSIDE so I don't get so depressed about the outside. This is when I itch to paint. Hubby should be nervous...very nervous. What was my rule? Oh yes, "Just don't paint the piano!" You got it, babe. I won't touch that.
