Begonias


Begonias
Originally uploaded by linfrye
We are selling greenhouse-grown Begonias for Easter to raise funds for the Arboretum. We've got pots of white and orangey red for sale ... and, like many of you suggested yesterday, my coworkers have STRONGLY suggested I create some cards from my sketches -- and so we're selling some of those too. We won't make a TON of money -- but every dollar gets turned into more landscaping that may one day, truly get this Arboretum off the ground!

I think that working at the Arboretum is great. You're surrounded by so much beauty you can capture in your paintings. Good luck with the sale!

What a terrific idea! And this one is PERFECT for a card,simple and yet very cheerful. Hey, every little bit of $$ helps -- cards are something most people are attracted to, you just might end up being the "star performer" at the fundraiser.

Such a lovely shade of red for the flowers and I love the red edges on the leaves -- just there but just enough! A wonderful card for the sale. Lots of luck!
Hugs,
