What a month of mixed emotions. Here in Illinois, the kids all go back to school mid August, and although my own kids are grown and done with school, the dreaded back-to-school feeling arises at this time of year. August is quite lovely in the garden tho. Many beautiful things are fully grown for the season and look so lush and the large grasses are starting to flower. The Rudbeckia subtomentosa is in bloom and makes an incredible cut! (Fall is coming) The garden phlox was beautiful this year. The Japanese Anemone has started to bloom! (already) I love every time of the year in nature.
Haven't posted much here on the www as it has been incredibly busy and dare I say....a bit stressful with moving my mom to assisted living (93) and then proceeding to completely empty her home with just my sister, all while working crazy 9-10 hour days. Needless to say, I haven't created much art. But friends, I've been THINKING about art. I'm so inspired by the natural beauty I see around me. There are loads of ideas in my head. I am going on a quick little trip to Detroit to see art. I can't wait!
I wanted to check in here since I still have people checking out the www and am so appreciative!
Got something to say? I'm all ears. :)
