After a lengthy period of time, I finally finished this painting of a dear friend's rose.
Unfortunately, I cannot remember the name of the rose.
It is done on watercolor paper with acrylic paints.

This is Quailcrest Herb Farm from the outside. It is a wonderful place in Wooster, Ohio. They have extensive herb gardens on the property. The first picture is of the house as you enter the property. It is where the owners live. The second building is the Tracy Barn, you can reserve it for special events.. The third picture is the entrance to the greenhouse. They have plants for sale outside too. If you are in a wheelchair or walker you will be able to get in the greenhouse through the walkway above. It is difficult to get around to see the plants outside. That area is set up like a garden, with small pathways.

I like to participate in the group #SundaySupper on twitter and facebook. Every Sunday people
share recipes and photos of what they are making for dinner.
Well Kitchen Sink Salad was my recipe for this past Sundays supper. I also made flavored
water to serve with it. I call the salad Kitchen Sink because I put everything in the fridge
into the salad. I remember an old saying, everything but the kitchen sink...
Kitchen Sink Salad
left over grilled chicken
*use whatever you have in the frig, sometimes I add strawberries, cheese, walnuts, dried fruit
Mix your salad up and add your favorite dressing.
My daughter had made bread with pesto in it so I had that with the salad.
pineapple, fresh or frozen, cut up
Add the fruit and mint to your pitcher and muddle it with a spoon or muddler.
Cover and put in frig overnight.
you can add sugar if you want, I happen to like it without sugar
