Stinky Flower and New Art ;o)

Hi Everyone ;o) I hope you're all having a nice day! It's raining here, again! They are calling for a heat wave next week, so we will see what happens?

My mom two years ago, bought these very large bulbs. Almost the size of a baseball. I don't know the name of them, but when they bloom, they stink like a skunk! LOL! They are suppose to keep away the mice, deer, rabbits, etc. My mom didn't buy them for that, she just thought they looked pretty. I would like to share some pics of them. I like the one that grew sideways this year!

















I found some old pieces of wood and cut them up. I thought, I am going to make some signs out them for my shop. Here is the first one I painted. I think it's cute, enjoy ;o)
















And, no word on the postal strike yet. I did put my shop on vacation mode, just in case. Also, thanks so much for all the votes everyone ;o) Hugs ;o) Have a wonderful day!

  8. hey Stacy, lovin the witch on wood painting! what a great idea, I think it would look great in a garden. Very pretty flower, although if it stinks that badly, I won't be in a rush to buy one, lol!
    it reminds me of a flower that blooms once every few years I think...it supposedly smells like rotted flesh - ok I had to look it up, it's called the carrion flower, and people line up to smell it, haha!

    So what's this about a coming heat wave? you wouldn't be teasing me would you?
    xoxo
