Dutchman's Breeches (Last Year)

We saw only one lonely D. Breeches last year, so I painted this from what I saw and the picture in the flower book.  It's actually more colorful than this year's painting--but this year (below) we had a look at 100's of them!  These little beauties come and go quite quickly.

Dutchman's Breeches

We were so excited to find tons of these Dutchman's Breeches (wildflowers) along the Roaring Fork Nature Trail--We went the day that the "drive" opened and were totally rewarded with these (rare to us) Flowers. GSMNP.

Some of the Wildflowers

We were looking for wildflowers--even tho' it was quite early......The ones we found were so pretty!  I didn't paint anywhere near all of the varieties.  Great Smokie Mountains National Park.

Smokie Mountains

Just returned fromt the Smokie Mountains--a little vacation :-)  Looking for Wildflowers, etc.  We always stop at this Waterfall because it is right along the "Little River Road" and easy to see.  Since we don't "hike" anymore, we are in tune with stuff we can see from the road or a "short" walk :-)  Had fun sketching and w/c some things which I may post later on.
