Rebecca's home is filled with such incredible flowers -- most glorious this time of year. Every imaginable color and style of iris can be found there -- along with roses -- knockouts, old-fashioned climbing, and more. This small bouquet graced her kitchen table this week, and so I painted it -- sketched and painted partly in the house, and last night as I sat in her garden guarding the new seedlings from her chickens, I brought the bouquet outdoors to finish painting. After such a frenzied day, that simple sitting among the clucking chickens and warm, pre-evening light, was the most peaceful, restorative time. Truly a blessing.
Today will be another overful day ... but tomorrow -- home and rest. It's misty-rainy outdoors ...and somewhat cooler.
Hope everyone's day is grand!
