Ordinary Days

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.
~John Ruskin

I've been working on my garden, planting seeds and hoping and praying that all I plant grows.  I seem to have a great deal of faith when it comes to my garden.  Or, I just enjoy the surprises that spring out of the dirt - or in my case carefully prepared soil. I think the rabbits are enjoying some of these surprises too.  I actually threw a couple of stones at a rabbit hoping she would run off and not nibble on my flowers anymore.  She's eaten my verbena, my marigolds and my lillies.  She didn't budge.  And as my boyfriend said, "Who throws stones at bunny rabbits?" Well, apparently I do when it comes to flowers.  But the bunny didn't budge.  She loves them as much as I do.  I guess I'll have to plant more - some for me and some for the bunny.

Springing Back

Phew, bet you thought spring would never get here.  I'm a little slow getting back to my art and my blog.  My plate has been so full.  I wish I could just take the peas off and hide them underneath the rim of the plate.  (Peas being the not so favorite duties of life.)  But the artist in me that needs color and flowers never really dies, it's just been dormant as I've had to tackle the peas on the plate.  But there have been some great new things as well.  I will share more later...
