Story Time with Captain Wheeler von Barrow IV

Summer is here!

That means it's time to shed those old fur coats. Gardner the garden cat is disposing of his as fast as he can, leaving a trail of fluff behind him wherever he goes.

That means Garden Keeper Carletta can work and play in the garden all day long. Have you ever had a butterfly land on your head?



That means a brand new watering can has appeared at the garden shed. Carletta picked it out yesterday on her way home from the last day of school.



That means the very first strawberries are ripe and ready to be plucked. Ladybug Lulu is at her post, defending the bounty of berries from unwelcome pests.


That means it's time for a game of hide 'n' seek. Flora Cat is already hiding--can you guess where?


That means that the garden shed is open for business and business is blooming!
And that means Captain Wheeler von Barrow IV is ready and waiting for his first wheelbarrow ride of the summer.

You can call him "Wheeler" for short...

...as in:
Wheeeee- ler!!


Summer is here!
Let's Celebrate!

I really enjoyed looking at your cat family tutorial...I'm into painting (oil) too, so that was fun for me! I can't wait to get into watercolours at some point.

Glad you enjoyed it! Too many people are "afraid" of watercolors, but it's like anything else new...you just need to dive in and be willing to practice, practice, practice. And have fun!
