Ahhhh…Summer! How I’ve missed you!
So good to have warmer weather and flowers blooming!
Back on my porch swing, listening to bluegrass music, the honeysuckle is coming back, the birds have returned to their houses & nests…..life is good!
Went into Flag for the new Urban Flea & Artisan Market this morning. Talked with some lovely, friendly vendors…weather was impeccable…Love this town!
The roses are going bonkers ! Love it!🌺💗🌺
Spent these last weekdays weeding, planting and tending to the front flower garden…ah yes, this makes me happy…The front is basically a shade garden… which is such a beautiful wonder when you step under the canopy of aspen leaves…damp, wet, smelling of fertile soil…it’s like a different world from the hot, dry weather of June! It’s heaven!
Here is my latest( and current favorite) inspired by the springtime winds…acrylic, watercolor and Stabilo.
I joined a relatively new local art cooperative a while back…Art35N…as a supporting member, hopefully one day to become an exhibiting member…and also started volunteering with the Flagstaff Arts Council.
These two entities converged this past Thursday at Coconono Center for the Arts for the first ever Art35N Gallery opening titled The New Latitude(referencing Flagstaff’s location on the map).
I found myself manning (or as someone pointed out to me…”womaning” the bar with another volunteer. Great fun!
It seemed to me the event was a great success and enjoyable for all who attended. We have some phenomenol artists in the group and I am honored to be a part of it.
So, here I am enjoying the promise of summer…sitting on my swing, burgers on the grill, and these two…
…playing in the sunshine by the vegetable garden.
Life really is a Wonderous Adventure❤️
