Basket Update

Just wanted to update my progress on my last holiday gift basket, which I have worked on a bit over the last few days.

This is the end that is closest to being done.  I added the little Christmas tree and bunnies:

I worked on the mountain end, adding trees that wrap around to the side slats:

The other slat side is waiting for some details:

So there's still plenty to do.  I probably worked about four hours on it since my last update.  

We had a bit of cooler, drier air make it this far south this week.  It felt great!  But cold fronts don't last long at this time of year, if they even make it here.  It'll stay in the upper 80's to low 90's for the next few weeks most likely.  Here I am painting winter holiday scenes when it's still subtropical summer outside!  Oh, and I wanted to share a photo of an orchid blooming in our yard.  It's pretty neglected outside, but the humid hot weather, shade, and summer rains seem to suit it.  Guess that comes of being a rainforest plant living in central Florida!  The flowers are huge and have lasted for weeks.  Bye for now!
