[slideshow]I finished the ukulele case I was working on this Memorial Day weekend. I am pleased with the results – I think it’s pretty. A little different than my last work and refreshing. Spring has sprung and I am digging the flowers and greenery everywhere – for at least a few more weeks, so flowers were my choice of subject matter here. The photo is dark – apologies.
I held true to my vow to stay in at all costs this holiday weekend. I enjoyed the peace of home, the smell of paint in my studio and Popsicles with my beloved. Later tonight I will water my sunflowers and hope to not disturb the garter snake that has claimed my back yard. She visits me every evening before dusk, poking her head above the grass to stare me down for a moment, then goes on her way toward the garden again. My yard is also home to a beautiful scarlet king snake that nearly gave me a heart attack the other night as she slithered up next to me and right under my picnic table -near my shoes. Who can remember the poem when face-to-face with a possible coral snake? That’s right – not me. I will never forget it now – Red touch yellow, kill a fellow. Head of black, get back. Anyway, thank you, Lorie for saving my life with the all powerful google.
