Inspired by a very fluffy robin I saw today.  So happy with all the rain and heat!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Actually, I am loving this severe heatwave.  If I am not in our cool basement or some other air conditioned spot, our neighbor’s pool is the place to be.  Other than floating around there I have made a few quick trips to check out the yard, where things are going crazy from  all the rain and sun.  There is so much blooming and it looks as if we are in store for a great harvest in the next month or so.  I did a few of these little flower children today and there were so many great leaves and flowers to choose from.  If you think these are cool check out this book by the amazing and prolific Elsa Mora.  Stay cool!


Well, since my last post rejoicing the arrival of Spring, it has come and gone.  That should be no surprise after 25 years in Minnesota but let’s just say I am a slow learner.  Anyhow, this week was the birthday of a dear friend who is an amazing botanical (and nature in general) illustrator; the blossoming of a beautiful walking iris given to me by a master gardening friend; and I am photographing all the flower/nature inspired earrings and jewelry I have been making then uploading to my Flickr photos.  So, though the weather has not been co-operating so much, I am celebrating Spring in the hopes that it returns soon; like hopefully the day after the 5 inches of snow we are being threatened with!  At any rate, hippity-hop and Happy Easter, Passover or Spring to you all.

Walking Iris, Thank you Susan!

If anyone knows a foot reflexologist qui vicino di Firenze, please let me know.  We took the train there again today and it was a beautiful crowded( though not as much as I expected) Saturday.  There was a lot of activity in the streets from the train station to the duomo, fruit and vegetables , clothes, scarves, toys, drawings, paintings, snack foods and (my personal favorite) the plant vendors.  Flowering plants large and small were arranged so beautifully I could hardly walk on.  Going back this Friday to see Michelangelo’s David…very exciting! Check out the squares of  ‘plastic grass’ with the yellow and white flowers under the squash in the bottom photo!
