A gentle spirit rests

 

Marking the passing of an era.


A true Labrador retriever, she loved her food.

A great companion.


Thanks for the love and the adventures.

Garden Notes 3

 

 I am making notes so that I am prepared for the garden next year.

Apricots and cherries ripen in July. Be prepared next year and buy your lids, pectin and jars in June.



I have received the most bang for the buck from the pansies I bought back in April. But don't bother buying coleus until the end of May...some died and none of them grew an iota until the weather warmed up.



Poppies arrive quite late, don't give up on them and don't pull them thinking they are weeds.

Garden notes 2


 Lilacs are in full bloom. Hostas are up. Rhubarb is up. Poppies I did not think made it are beginning to appear (be patient)

Note to self:  Don't buy coleus until mid-May

It dropped down to 2C last night!

And Finally, Z2021!


 I thought I would get All of these paintings dashed off in January...more fool me. I had a lot of fun designing the backgrounds, playing with gelli prints and papers, going back and fiddling until it felt right. Feeling pretty good about this little set. Now I am busy printing and assembling the cards and prints for my studio's that carry them.
