Just like "Coming Home" we've been here so many times!

Was so glad Maurice got well enough for us to make the trip again!

The old wood smell welcomes us at the front door!

Fellow Artist and Neighbor Hope Mathews has come with us every year. We always bring some creative project besides our paints to work on.. This year it was Bohemian Swags

Maurice's favorite activities while there are reading, walking the Katy Trail and eating! He doesn't add playing cards to the list but he is a good sport and joins in every night!

It was very cold so we didn't go out painting! But it didn't bother our new artist friend Henryk Ptasiewicz!  He even slept in his car!

The flowering  trees and spring flowers were beautiful! Notice the bundled up artist painting on the sidewalk!

Breath taking Dogwoods!

Don't see these old fashioned yellow iris's at home very often!

Beautiful variegated tulips in front of the parsonage

I did some colored pencil drawings on postcards to abandon .

You can tell where we were here!

Left this one with the tip for our blond waitress!

I worked on 2 paintings while there. Will finish them at home.

This is the scene from the front door.

Our two favorite places to stop on the way home!

 With friend Donna Garber owner of Vintage Daze in Tipton. Always come home with several treasures from there, Usually red in color!
Our little Tasha Doggy  was glad we were back!  She was well taken care of though by our granddaughter Jackie,
