eating what comes after the flowers
in the evening,
Woke up early and headed straight down to the studio. Debussy and Satie playing on Pandora, cats sleeping on all the chairs, and my hands covered in paint, aqua and apple green. I wanted to make this flower painting with a figure in it. She's looking like one of my dolls with long, stripey legs.
At lunch time I reached for truly nourishing food: almonds, cranberries, fresh strawberries, yogurt. Felt good to eat healthy - I should do it more often!
Rob went to town on building the retaining wall where the old spruce tree used to stand. I was sad when the tree came down, but it was one of those trees you don't really want in the front yard, dripping pitch onto your car. He planted a Japanese maple in its place, and now has built this attractive wall with planting space. Off to the plant nursery we went, and grabbed whatever sun loving perennials we liked, not thinking too much about design, but didn't it turn out pretty?
I'm longing to put in flower beds in the back yard next...
