Double Layered Poppies Painting

My daughter painted this double layered poppies when I was arranging a flower in the base that I picked from my garden sometime last year.  Then l]ate last year, she wanted to   draw something that she wants to  submit into an art contest and she could not come up with anything so I suggested for her to  try to submit this photo that she already painted months ago.  She hesitated but she did it anyway.  Their art teacher  liked it so she submitted it.
She did not win but she earn an honorable mention recognition for it.  I bought a frame for it and  I hanged it in our dining room wall.
Kids' art works  are just a master piece in the eyes of  parents, would you agree.  For someone like me who doesn't know ho=w to sketch anything,  my children's art works are beautiful.  I am biased as I am their Mom but I am sure that you feel the same way with your kids.

Hi Joops, regret to read about your family history health problems.
Joops, I suggest you if not already, go start drinking Chinese Green Tea.
Drink at least 5 cups a day. (I drink 6!)
Look it up.....
In case you wondering which ones....
there's 2 you might like to try....
go to a Chinese medicine store...
there's...............

1/ Lung Ching (Dragon Well Green Tea). This tea at one time was only for the Chinese Emperor and according to legend, only virgins with gold scissors were allowed to cut the tea buds.
Wonder how they know? Maybe some cheated?

2/ Temple of Heaven Green Tea Special Gunpowder.
No...this will not blow you up when drinking like a 105 howitzer incoming.
It was called that by a British guy who noticed the folded tea leaves looked like gun powder. Thus the name.

First one is a light colour, 2nd one darker.
I keep both of them and alternate everyday....
Try it Joops....5 cups everyday, you'll feel good.

Wishing you and family a very happy New Year, and may the Force be with you, best regards, Lee.

Sweet Joops, thanks for your last visit to my blog. You know, what you are saying here is very worthy, but I have lived a long time and eaten a lot of food, some good and some bad, and I know that there is a lot of chemicals in food, and one of the ways we can stop and go back to good unadulterated food is to insist that GMF is abandoned. No one listens to me. Surely there are many people with good old common sense who could see that the bubble had to burst...financially...and they must also see that we cannot go on genetically modifying food without it all coming back to smash us...give men breasts and women gonads. How many cars do we need? How many holidays abroad? Must we continue to destroy our planet in search of more oil, more gold, more uranium, metals, coal, timber etc.
Perhaps this credit crunch, recession, depression, will make us all take our planet more seriously, buy only what we need and only what we can afford.
Oh dear. Where did all that come from.

Even so: Happy New Year to you and your lovely family.

Hi Joops,
Better consult a discerning pastor. Your family may be heir to a generational curse. It's better to be safe and sure. The only way to break the curse is by destroying it by the blood of Jesus in a spiritual warfare ceremony. Your discerning pastor will tell you how. Thanks for the informative post. God bless you always.
