Sweet memories arrived today via an email from an old friend. She sent me a copy of a card I'd painted for her fairly soon after I'd started painting with watercolors. The front and back of the card are shown here. The broccoli theme was an inside joke which we had a lot of fun with.

The card must be over 20 years old, and I feel honored that she'd kept it all this time. The inside of the card completed the rhyme with "Hope this is the best birthday of all." The back of the card certainly didn't go with the theme, but the choice of flower and colors were important. Maybe it's time to paint more cards.
