As Arizona heats up to 111 degrees (yesterday) everything starts to dry up. I yearn for another trip to visit my daughter in Seattle to soak up their summer flowers. A walk in her neighborhood is such a creative rush, as there are gardens and flowers everywhere! The pics below were taken at the tail end of last summer during the first week in September. The colors definitely make their way into my painting. If you click on one of the pics, it turns into a gallery of the full sized pics and you can scroll through.
