A Garden moment



 A lovely lady named Glennis Dolce of Shibori Girl Studios gave me some Nigella Flower seeds in the Spring.  I planted them in a pot because if anything looks like a weed in our area it gets sprayed by my husband. Some areas are off limits, so a pot is safer.

I saw the flowers on one of Glennis's blogs and wrote to her, she kindly dropped them off at Timberline Gallery, when they were up in the Yosemite area. Sadly, it was not on a day we could meet. But we will one day.

I must say a few words about this lady I have never met. She is an amazing talented artist, she takes tour groups to Japan, she shares her ideas, techniques and teaches. You know she is gifted with fantastic artistry, and she is multi lingual.  I know I have missed so many of her talents, so check out her blog!
You will be overcome with the silk and the colors, and she has an Etsy Store.



I had a bumper crop of tomatoes, they flowed on to and over the area.  Delicious!

Our peach colored cat 2 is enjoying the shade on a hot day in summer.

And now it is Fall... Hope it stays warm, because I want more of those tomatoes to ripen!

  1. I'll have to check out the blog. I like anything to do with silk.

    Funny the different names that folks use to describe your cat's coat. You say peach. I say red. Some say ginger, even yellow. Whatever the name, still one of my favorite cat colors.

  2. very kind words Vivian! thank you. i hope we get to meet up- maybe next year if i get the yosemite artist residency for a week. and don't forget to save the nigella seeds for eating (and a few to plant next year). i recently read where the miwok used woven seed beaters to collect seeds from the farewell to spring. interesting. i'm never there to see the seed pods. as for the etsy shop- most of my work gets sold through the bigcartel shop so if anyone wants to peruse -that's the place to go. i won't put the link here as sometimes comments with links get filtered out as spam but yo can get to it through the blog. just search shiborigirl...love the nigella photo. i have some that reseeded from summer but we'll see how they tolerate the colder months...
