I am back in the saddle, so to speak.........nowadays I ride a Husquevarna!!
Seaweed and Surf. 13 x 13 Another great piece of driftwood with gemstones and seed beads, and hand dyed fabric, rhyolite and a nice amonite.
I have no excuse, but a very good reason for my long absence:
A double day lily....eleven buds that all bloomed....that was a gift from friends. They live about sixty miles west of us and have had a drought this summer, they lost the parent plant to this one.
An Angel's Trumpet, or Datura. We did not plant this, it might have come in with the bit of soil a friend gave us in a box of six Zinnia. Which, by the way, are providing some nice colour in our green garden. I only noticed it two weeks ago when it poked its head up in the middle of the potatoes! How it ever managed to out muscle them is truly a wonder. The potatoes took over like Kudzu vines...but only 2 or 3 tubers per plant. Everyone around here said potatoes were a big
disappointment this year.
The Kale we planted to get cabbage worms is working. We had a snowstorm of cabbage butterflies (Canadian White) a few weeks ago and I have seen a wren in the plants picking the worms......big grin! Humming birds in the Zinnia too, even bigger grin!
I have another piece almost finished, I will post more pictures soon.
Have fun in your studios ladies, and cuddle your cats.
