Yesterday was my dear friend Flora Doehler's birthday.  
Here is the post I wrote last year, which still applies this year.
Happy Belated Birthday Flora.  We love and miss you.

"Flora is such a wonderful artist.  We love her art so much
that when we go to Nova Scotia, we take a four hour drive to
make sure we drop in on Flora and Larry Knox, her husband in Bear
River.  They are sweet.  And they are always wildly
enthusiastic about their lives.  At a time when some of life
is so frightening, and much of the daily routine seems endless,
it is always inspiring to see Flora's art, and talk to these two.

Flora gets flowers like no one else, and her paintings have the
same effect as flowers -- they take your breath away with
their beauty. I always feel happy looking at her work.

Sending Flora a toast to a wonderful year with lots of sales 
despite the continuing pandemic."

Have a celebrating your friends day!

Well thank you very much dear Barbara. Let me say that your and Steven’s summer visit is ALWAYS such a highlight for us, if never long enough. I love talking art with you and hearing about your wild and wonderful life showing your gorgeous paintings in three of my fave capitols…Toronto, Paris and New York.
Love, Flora.
