Cosmos

As early as spring is this year, our cosmos are not in bloom --- but the riot of color, the way they bob around in the wind, and the softness of their colors certainly appealed to me this week ... and so I painted these for the carefree attitude these flowers seem to have.

Thank each of you for your condolences for the loss of my friend. The funeral was yesterday and a sad event ... but moving forward ... for the family especially ... will be the greater challenge and prayers continue on their behalf.

Our plant sale is a mere 3 weeks away and the intensity of the preparations have increased even more making time for painting, relaxing and commenting even shorter. But as quickly as time is flying this year, the sale will be here and past before we know it, and life should return to a less frenetic pace -- (we hope!!). LOL

The weather continues to be warm and mild and already the vegetables we planted over the last few weeks are about ready to harvest -- lettuces, radishes, chard, kale. Amazing!

Hope you have a calm and joyous week!
