A mid 19th century English Victorian tray of Valentines cookies I brought to the Art Gallery that sells my artwork for a Artwalk last Friday.
Happy Valentines day! I hope everyone's day is going well. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day here in Mobile, Alabama. As I write this post the Temperature is 66' degrees and bright and sunny outside. Letting us know that a early Spring might be here as last in the Deep South. I started my day by letting my dog out and calling dear friends all over the world wishing them Happy Valentines day as I eat about three slices in bed of my French Coconut pie. After my calls I did a much needed airing out of my home and some spring cleaning. I I had a Valentine surprise by finding about 30 sprigs of Paperwhite Narcissus blooming on the side of my home. I love paperwhites, I thought they were finished a month ago but I'm sure the warm weather brought them on. Today on Valentine's day I love to fill my 19th century vases filled with fresh flowers enjoy.
