Taking a few moments from vacuuming.
Our gathering of "animals" at the pond. A Flamingo is the newest arrival.. but the raft with the gorilla is sinking... look out, fish below! The plastic ducks are still floating around, no big waves. But as the sun shines more and there is less rain our "pond" is shrinking.
It sure is fun to have residents with humor on our road. Another rain is scheduled for later in the week. So everyone is busy spraying or weeding. Riding mowers are the sound in the distance, clearing of weeds on the road way, trimming of tree limbs to prevent fires. It is wonderful to have beautiful new growth and green trees. .but the weeds that I need to pull seem to be growing to the sky. The beautiful wild flowers peek between the weeds.. I want the pinks and purple of the wild flowers, so hand pulling is the only way to save the flowering plants. I can't see any of the beautiful
orange poppy plants we had in the overflow of the river.. They must have washed down stream during the storm... so sad. Hope they settle and sprout again to make someone smile. Looking to see if any have come down stream for us to enjoy... I guess they start out small, the ones we had had grown into bushes.. so beautiful.. How is your spring season coming along.. quilting?
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
