Fearington Garden Art
We have a 2 story home so the attic steps add yet another climb -- to say I made the trip from the attic, down the 2nd story stairs, out the door and down those stairs, across the yard to load the truck for distribution to Good Will and the trash at least 60 times is no exaggeration. At least I got in my exercise for the day! LOL
There are still boxes I'd love to repack and remove, but at least there's a clear path across the entire length of the house with room to spare! What a job! They say you need to move every 10 years so you can clean out the accumulated 'stuff!" Well, we didn't move, thank heavens, but we're certainly moving a ton of things we should have recycled years ago. I did uncover a few 'missing' items, and saying a final farewell to my beloved college books was a bit difficult, but boy, I feel pounds lighter! LOL
The exhibit hanging and major clean up didn't leave much time to sketch. This is from a visit to Feariington to have lunch and paint with my friend, Florence.
The artful garden pieces Fearington adds to their landscaping are truly wonderful and inspirational not only for art, but for additions in the new garden I, too, hope to put in. That is, if the kittens will find another place to play. The temperature yesterday was well into the 70s -- bright blue sky -- a perfect day to be outdoors -- so I'm glad the kittens enjoyed it while we sweated in the attic! LOL But they're romping a lot in my garden areas. I suppose the ground is far easier for them to paw. But if I'm ever going to have annuals blooming again, I'm going to have to find a way to encourage their playful antics somewhere else!
Today Charles' friends come for a jam session. I"m hoping the aspirins help my sore limbs and I can paint a bit.
Hope you remembered to turn back your clocks last night! It sure is mighty dark at wake-up time!
