Greetings. As of today I am absolutely done with school for a couple months!! Summer school, DONE! I am looking forward to days of painting and gardening and painting and gardening. It all becomes one and the same after awhile . I go into the garden, do my thing, get inspired by every little bud and weed, leaf and flower, go to my studio to paint and now, with my garden just on the other side of my studio’s windows it pulls me back out there again after a couple of hours! I can’t imagine a better scenario. So , with that in mind I am going to post some images of my garden . Right now it’s about CHERRIES! Starting today we will be picking, pitting, and preserving CHERRIES! A cherry pie or two will probably be in our near future!
