It was in many ways a spectacular day.  We finally planted most 
of our front garden, so it looks pretty, and like people live here.
(Lol.) And we enjoyed the views on our back porch and front
porch, shopped for plants, talked about the garden, and argued
about what should go where. Then agreed and got it done.

The threat of rain hung over the day, but it only came down in
very faint drops that disappeared as soon as they arrived, and
we drove to the lake. We stared at the waves, the boats, the
ducks the geese, and the people out enjoying this city on
a Sunday.  

And the clouds were mind blowing again. I was so moved that
I didn't even take a picture! How weird. 

This drawing is on my iPad, and I've worked on it off and on
for awhile. It is of an incredibly messy dresser top. Maybe 
mine. It isn't like that now, but I appreciate the crazy detail.
What I like about still life, even when it's drawn with a finger
on an iPad, is the intimacy, the way things look at a certain

Have an enjoying the details in your life day.

Interesting drawing. My mind wonders what all the jars and bottles are about.
Shopping for plants is so much fun. What did yiu plant ? Today I bought a new white clematis and some white oriental poppies.

Thank you Evelyn, I was trying to figure out what all the jars were for.
The bottle is probably from a celebration of a sale
or something, and sometimes we share a small drink together.
(I don't drink -- except on special occasions -- because even
a glass of wine keeps me awake. And when we
have champagne, my husband serves me an eighth of a glass!)
One jar is cold cream, there's a lipstck, an earring, a
bottle of aspirin, and a bottle of multi-vitamins. The red
shape beside the bottle is a flashlight, there are make up
brushes. Nothing very exciting.

Hi Eveln,
I Forgot the
forgive me. My cat got scared when I was holding her watching
TV and she banged her head against my forehead. It hurts, and I
Hope she's okay.
