This Summer, the group that I paint with outdoors went to this Day Lily Farm in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. I never saw so many different colors and varieties of day lilies. The home and the barn were made of this rich, brown stone - it was difficult to settle down and find just one location to paint. I decided on this view of the house, greenhouse and outbuilding because of the flowers growing amongst them, and also because I really liked the ladder leaning up against the tree.

I love all the flowers in this Claire. It makes me happy thinking about climbing trees as a kid. Lovely!

Thanks, Kristen. I have to admit I spent a lot of time up in trees when I was a kid - you got such a great view from up there!

Claire - this is a perfect rendition of the Daylily Farm. I was just there again last week and the ladder is still against the tree!! We will have to go back again in 2010.

Thanks, Mary Beth! It was a such a beautiful place to paint - I would love to go back there again next year.
