Yesterday I received an engraved invitation in the mail. It was from these sunny poppies blooming in the beautiful sidewalk gardens behind Norton Art Gallery here in Shreveport. It said: Paint us. You know you want to.

And I have been wanting to. So I did.

Just kidding about the invitation part, by the way. Although they were whispering pretty loudly as I passed by that day at the garden.
