I hope you had a nice Memorial Day weekend. Yesterday was HOT. It felt more like the 4th of July. We celebrated my grandson's birthday with a picnic. A good time was had by all, especially the birthday boy who seemed to favor his new red garden gloves over all his gifts. He put them on a didn't take them off the entire time.
Perhaps he will have his great grandmother's green thumb (my mother). She has beautiful flowers around her house, here's one arrangement she put together.

I have a few vintage postcard images to share with you today. These are a little different from what I've posted before. Since it felt like a summer day yesterday, I thought I'd offer you some fresh fruit. It would be difficult to ship to each of you, so I'm offering the next best thing. Free for you today, strawberries, plums, and cherries. I hope you enjoy them. Notice the bumble bee in each of the images.

These vintage postcards were done by artist Catherine Klein (1861-1929). After attending art school in Berlin, she was highly sought after as a postcard illustrator. She was best known of many artists in her day for the beautiful flowers she painted. Art teachers used her work as models, and still do today. Unfortunately not much was known about her life.
The apple trees in my area are in full bloom today and just beautiful. Here are some apple blossoms painted by Catherine Klein. Free for you today. Notice they seem to have a 3D effect.

I hope you've enjoyed this post and the brief history of artist Catherine Klein. She has gone from this earth, but she has left her beauty for us all to enjoy, all these years later.

Have a blessed day dear ones.
