 Join Us in the 2013 A-Z Challenge!

During the month of April, I am participating in the "Blogging From A-Z April 2012 Challenge", where we post everyday during the month of April (except for Sundays).  Daily posts begin with the next letter of the alphabet.  This is my third year of participating in the challenge.  "CLICK HERE" to find out more.

This year, I have chosen to do a study on poet and artist, Cicely Mary Barker.  I am featuring her book "A Flower Fairy Alphabet"Not only will you learn about pretty flowers, but I will also be giving you a few fun facts about Ms. Barker each day.

"Barker worked principally in watercolor with pen-and-ink, but she was equally competent in black-and-white, in oils, and in pastels. She carried a sketchbook with her for capturing interesting children. She once indicated, "I have always tried to paint instinctively in a way that comes naturally to me, without any real thought or attention to artistic theories."[2]  Source: Wikipedia's Article on Cicely Mary Barker

I love pansies! I planted a ton of them last year and can't wait to do the same this year. There's something about their little faces that just makes me happy. :)

Those pansies are so beautiful and from a distance they look a bit like butterflies.

Yay -- my favorite flower. I plant in September, and they are good almost till June. When the heat hits, they're done. Love 'em!

Now, pansies I do recognize. :) We plant them here in October and they'll bloom all winter into spring and early summer. They look so fragile, but they're hearty!
