Artists in training

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day!
I want to brag on my grandson, granddaughter, and nephew's art work. They were to draw a self-portrait and I think they nailed it!
Here is my grandson Gavin......
 Looks like his selfie, doesn't it?
My granddaughter, Kayla..............
 ................and her selfie......................
And my nephew, Shane.....................
 Isn't this amazing? This is exactly how he looks! This photo is a younger version but I think you can see the resemblance.
These three were born the same year. Kayla in January, Gavin in July, and Shane in October. Talk about an eventful year! 
I'm working on a granny ripple right now. I tried to make it in the colors of a rainbow...
My 'red hot poker' is starting to bloom.....
How do you like my plant stand that I bought at the yard sale Saturday?


Have a great week!

All 3 self-portraits look great - they did very good.
Your rainbow granny ripple is looking nice.
Love the plant and the plant stand. I have one of those that my sister gave to me about 5 years ago.
Happy Memorial Day! :)

I'm impressed.

I love the rainbow granny ripple, it looks so bright and uplifting. It really is very effective.

Great to see your garden as well, it's looking really nice.
