Consider The Lilies...

The building contractor is due this week 
to start major repairs to this old house.  
I was worried that he would trample 
the lovely orange Turk's Cap lilies in the garden
so this morning I moved 
at least ten plants to a spot by the porch.  
They look a little wilted now.
I hope they will survive.

Spring Flowers After Rain

Today I grabbed my camera, went out, 
and took a little walk about the lawn.

Water droplets accented the lupine whorls:

The allium were almost all open:




Ghostly silvery ferns rested on the ground:

Then the Bleeding Hearts caught my attention:




Blue bells on stalks tucked among the hostas 
showed some color:

And raindrops beaded up on the 
larger hosta leaves:

More Security Envelope Liner Patterns

It's odd how sometimes I can't seem to get
inspired until the last moment...

Some Casual Altered Rolodex Cards

I am finally getting back to making 
some small-scale art to swap.
I remember when I was so enchanted
by altered Rolodex cards, despite the
challenge of putting together a design
on such a limited space.  
Perhaps there is a time, a place,
a season for everything?

Nature's Small Treasures


I picked up these acorns
by a roadside one autumn,
and found the empty snail shells 
under shrubbery
by a store parking lot.  Pretty!
