Late July

Blackberry lilies with Misha painting in background.

 When the bloom has faded, it coils up like a spring, later, the plant
produces it's seeds which resemble blackberries.

summertime images.

I'm spending more time in the garden now, for
the wheel is turning and I can already feel the cooler times ahead.

Borage, Pansies and Bumblebees are part of the rhythm of the day.

The light is changing and colors are softer.

"this is the garden:colours come and go,
frail azures fluttering from night's outer wing
strong silent greens silently lingering,
absolute lights like baths of golden snow.
This is the garden:pursed lips do blow
upon cool flutes within wide glooms,and sing
(of harps celestial to the quivering string)
invisible faces hauntingly and slow."

Behold Her Beauty

Small painting on tin, completed today.

That moment when the creature is still and lets you behold her beauty.

At home this summer

My sheet metal Deer has come outside to leap against the fence.
This is a good place for her.

So much to see and do in the summer I never tire of being at home.
The Borage plant above is one of my favorites! The blue color with the pale mauve is so beautiful and very friendly with the bees!

This is the time to slow down and enjoy feeling the sun, and eat fresh food.
The raspberries are ripening now and also plenty of vegetables.

Blessings to you as we revel in the warm and vibrant season of summer!
