Butterflies, fabric, and rain
Well, once again I have been away from my computer, busy with company and summer activities. I am loving the part time hours at work, something I will enjoy for just a little longer. You would think that with all the extra time I would have some wonderful art of my own to show you, but it just didn't happen. I have been sketching and fiddling around with fabric, so hopefully something will come together soon. (Gratuitous picture of tidy stash above, it looks nothing like this at the moment.)
I recently discovered that I don't have the patience to be a wildlife photographer. Right now I literally have a yard full of butterflies, and you would think I could get a decent picture. We have seen more butterflies this year than ever before, probably because the passiflora vines are so prolific.
One of the pond fish came over while I was taking the picture, curious or hoping to be fed.
Lots of people have been talking about the adventures in weather we have been having lately (triple digits, hot, hot, hot). Can you say global warming? Yesterday, like an answer to a prayer, it suddenly turned cool and rainy. I am loving the gentle sound of the rain, and I have the window open to enjoy the breeze.
