Two more Pics...

Based on the Tulip Trees I have growing in my Yard... this is how they look in springtime in Louisville, Kentucky.

My Mom & Dad...


A painting I did for my parents *OF* my real parents. This was based on one of my wedding photos, in the original photo I was standing in between them. ^_^

(You can see the original photo in my pics in the wedding photos album.

Happy Birthday, BTW!

Those are Saucer Magnolia flowers, m'dear. I have one such tree just off my deck here in TN. Tulip Trees, also called Yellow Poplars, have big yellow flowers, only yellow. (creds would be the M.S. in Botany, heh)

Your parents look adorable! Your paint skills rule. *hugs*

AH, someone told me those were tulip trees when I asked my neighbors. Some historical society leader! I thought for sure she'd know, she sounded certain enough. LOL.

Thank you for the clarification. Where are you in TN?

My aunt lives in Portland.

Perhaps that's what the locals call them ('cause they don't know what they are, yanno)...

I'm in Jackson, which is between Memphis and Nashville, closer to Memphis. Sorry, don't know where Portland is! My husband though is closer to you - he works in Somerset, KY (2 hours S of Lexington?) and comes home every other weekend (yeah, that sucks, but it's job security).
