I used a photo reference for this painting, and tried to give this a more relaxed, looser feel. Looser paintings are still a challenge for me!! LOL
Yesterday was a far quieter work day than I've had in a long time -- nice! Temperatures are cooler, especially in the morning. We're in the mid-50sF with highs expected to be around 80F.
Our college is celebrating its 40th anniversary next week - our new president gets inaugurated, we have an open house, and so we're busily preparing 'hands-on' activities and tours for guests. Construction on the new garden must wait until after the celebrations, but we're also in the throes of ordering plants, gravel, equipment and the like.
We've another trip planned, a conference at the end of the month, and fall plantings around the rest of the property.
Fall is really a terrific time for gardening!
Thank you all for your most overwhelming comments yesterday ... I am deeply touched and humbly grateful ....
I hope your day is filled with joy and peace!
