Chinese Lanterns

Today's painting is sponsored by the color orange. Daily Painters picked today as theme day and it is orange.

When I was a kid we had a neighbor who had gardens with flowers and plants I had never seen before. Chinese Lanterns and Money plants were my favorites. I still think they are pretty cool. And mom said money didn't grow on trees...although Washington seems to think so.

And on the subject of listening to Mom - I somehow lodged a piece of shrimp in my throat last night and had to go to urgent care where the doctor literally scared it out of me - as he was talking going to the ER for removal it magically dislodged itself. So lesson learned? Always chew your food ... and stay away from shrimp!

Deb: As a physician, I'm sorry to hear of your medical predicament. Meanwhile, the Chinese lanterns are perfectly done. I love the texture on them.
