Pull, weed, dig, and sweat

No glamorous white gloves here

New flowers, worth it!

Art Prescription:  So my bee balm has run its course. I made space for a new flower garden that will delight me until fall.

He holds her steady

She carries eight months in front

Soon will be strolling!

Art Prescription:  Ah, the life cycle…went to the North Carolina Botanical Gardens today to sketch. This time of year the flowers are starting to go to seed, preparation for a new spring, new plants. The shapes and textures of pods are interesting. At some point I shall do a study of pods. For now the flowers are still in bloom, and the butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds are abundant…heaven.
