talking blocks and a wild hare...

Talking Block No. 6
(i do)


Talking Block No.7

Talking Block No. 8
(nature lover)



Wild Hare No. 7

I've been spending lots of time in the studio this week but the garden needs some serious tending.  The weeds are going crazy with all the rain and I need to get in there, clean things up, sew a few new seeds and put down a bit more coffee chaff.  The strawberries are all done, the blackberries are almost ready, the zucchini, pole beans and peppers are getting bigger.  The carrots, beets, kale and herbs are looking good and a few tomatoes are appearing.  Something ate much of the spinach and cabbages but left the rest of the lettuces alone and with the moderate temps they are continuing to grow.  I love having a garden but do not love weeding.  How about you...what's coming up in your garden?

City Blocks...

City Block No.2, No.3, No.4, No.5


Inspired by my trip to San Francisco or the 1st day of summer...maybe a little of both!

Celebrating 20 Years...


Chuck and I spent all of last week in Northern California celebrating 20 years of marriage.  The six years before our wedding (and our 1st two years of marriage) were spent in that gorgeous place. We had a really lovely time looking back and looking forward as we soaked up the sun, sampled new wines and enjoyed unbelievably yummy food.  Another milestone in this year :)

It's all over and all just beginning...

Phoebe's high school graduation is over, the big dinner has passed, the relatives have all headed home and it's feeling just a bit too quiet here today.  The boys both finish up today and then the five of us will have a special dinner to celebrate the end of the school year followed by game night.  I have a feeling summer is going to pass a bit too quickly for all of us.  And then a big new beginning as we send Miss P off to college...so much to process.
