Wisteria Country

This is a combination of photos - the barn and landscape from Oxford and the wisteria from where I work. Though the wisteria has just begun to bloom at home, here, 90 miles south where I work, it is in its full violet glory. Ropes of the sweet fragranced vine are looping over trees and fences and running along the ground ... quite magnificent!

The weather was perfect yesterday for the art installation at the Arboretum, and the press came out for our Plant A Row for the Hungry volunteeers - now over 20 strong - with new folks joining weekly. These eager, incredible folks raked, hoed and installed plants in the entire kitchen garden .... all in time for next week's plant sale -- I almost cried in gratitude!

Today, more preparations and the opening of the new Farmer's Market in town.

My gracious -- spring has really been coming in on a run!

Have a great day!

You are an amazing colorist. What you are able to accomplish in watercolor is nothing short of brilliant.

Enjoy your weekend.
