High supposed to reach 98 degrees F. and feels it already. Heat index to feel like 107 degrees.
Last Sunday we took a ride to Gordonsville, a little town in Orange county Va. I have posted about this place before but that was in the fall and now in the summer, the shops have some pretty flowers out in pots.
Sweet shops in the town and some were open. We mostly just window shopped except for a vintage shop across the street from Barbeque exchange, where we ate some great barbeque.
Shops on our walk in town. A few anyway, too hot to walk too far. Stokes has some beautiful iron work.
The shop keepers must constantly water as the plants are look lush and green.
I purchased these two watercolor botanicals from the vintage shop across from barbeque restaurant. I don't even recall the name of the place. It had so much stuff sitting around and it's changed hands a couple times.
Anyhow here are the two pictures that are nicely framed. I believe it was $3.00 a piece I paid, not entirely sure as my husband took them to the counter to pay for them. Begrudgingly I must say. He didn't like the glass on them he said, too shiny. Well I like them and I will hang them somewhere, maybe dining room.
These paintings are by Coral Guest. A botanical artist, teacher and author.
The next one is a little fuzzy. Hard getting a good shot with this glass. Steve is right. Maybe I could fine non glare glass. Hate to unframe it though.
Hope you can read about the pink rose here. Blurry I know.
I am happy I found them as I love roses.
