My sweet mama picked these for me from her garden. Both she and the irises are magnificent.
. . . I think that's more ivy than what graces the ancient walls of most English castles.
So I've had this happy problem. I haven't had time to blog because I've been so busy with artwork. If anything is going to get in the way of blogging, I'm glad it's art. However, I do miss hanging out in this online creative space, and I've been trying to think of ways that I can still spend some time here. So for the time being anyway, and for what it's worth, I'll share images of my day-to-day.
My husband and I recently had the chance to see the Shaw Festival's production of "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder (a wonderful birthday gift from one of my dear brothers and my sister-in-law and their kids). It was such a fabulous production: I really can't say enough about the excellence of everything, and you should go see it if you can. What I loved most about the play was that it reminded us - even pleaded with us - to pay attention to and delight in the everyday glories of life. This is a message that is very dear to my heart: I've always strived to appreciate life's simple wonders. I don't always succeed. So by sharing some images from my everyday, maybe I can help myself - and maybe even a couple others - appreciate what each day gives us.
So here goes . . .
