Garden, and Class
Have been picking berries, it is wonderful to go pick one's own. The garden is in nice shape and has flourished with rains. You see Shirley Poppies, Delphinium, and Missouri Buttrcups for the most part. It looks like I have no paths in all these large plants, I do. It is also one of my favorite things to bring flowers inside.
The Shirley poppies you see with the berries have to be seared with a lighted match to last in a vase. You sear the end of the stem, so it is backened.
In All Nora's art and the Technicolor faces which you can see at the right is great fun. I am not a free spirit with this technique yet. like all things worthwhile it takes practice. It ups the energy level to have something exciting to do.
