Last Thursday, we painted at Jean's house. Her hollyhocks were blooming, and I do love hollyhocks. I think they may be my favorite flower - probably because they remind me of New Mexico. Flowers are not my thang. I can kill most any plant. Cactus is what I do best, but I did have hollyhocks in NM. I may have mentioned this before, but after a year in OK, we went back to do some work on our house in Questa. My hollyhocks were tall and gorgeous. For whatever reason, I burst into tears when I saw them - great huge hups! Don't know what was up with that. Toby thought I had lost my mind, but there was just something about seeing my hollyhocks and missing my mountains. Anyway the Painted Ladies each painted the same hollyhocks, but different colors. Yellow was my designated color. We may do a quad-painting with them. As usual, I finished before everyone else and did a little poppy painting. Now I can knock out some poppies in no time.

Hollyhocks and Poppies
I don't know what was up with Blogger today, but it was not up. Several times this morning, I tried to post, but Blogger was not running. I wish I were more of a computer expert, but basically I am a monkey. I can do what I am taught to do. Sometimes, while reaching for a banana, I actually make something work right. Most of the time I need my trainers to help me, although I will try things on my own. Yet, I look down my monkey nose at those who can "only do email." After all, I am a blogger and have been for over five years. It just goes to show that if I can blog, anybody can blog. A monkey by any other name is still a monkey.
