A Return - to ABC Wednesday and WOYWW

Yes - fireworks!
Over a month break from blogging and I am ready to return. I needed the break but I have missed the challenges and the daily contact here.
I have done little art or writing but now I feel refreshed and ready to create.
last week we spent a few days in Lake George - our yearly trip to the area, especially Saratoga Springs. On a Thursday night we found ourselves in Shephard Park watching the Weekly fireworks. What a show!


It is appropriate to share one of my photos of fireworks as this week at ABC Wednesday, the letter of the week is "F". I am joining in the 17th round a wee bit late, but better late than never"

I have decided this round to start with a photo and then create an art piece for that photo.



F is for flowers. There were so many lovely flowers in Lake George. Here are some of my favourites.







I then created a watercolour of a single flower today.




WOYWW



I am returning as well to WOYWW - the meme hosted by Julie at "Stamping Ground" - where we are asked to share what we are working on and what's on our workspaces.

Here's my dining room table - where I was working this afternoon.

In answer to your question about my pvc pipe - I use it to attach my video camera so I get a view from the top. :-)

Firstly my apologies for a late comment, i have been far to busy repairing my blog after a moval from one host to another... and taking care of other things that needed to be taken care of since my husband and i have health issues at the same time.

Flowers sometimes are like fireworks, i love both ;-) in their expression of colours

have a nice weekend
