Yesterday I got several plants moved to different areas of my garden because rain was in the forecast. I don't usually move plants this late in the year because of the heat, but this an been an usually cool summer with tons of rain. When I left the house this morning I noticed the little droplets of rain on the leaves of my newest roses. I love the way each little drop clings to the edges like beads sew to the edge of fabric.
I promise to get back to painting soon. I've been busy with gardening and visiting with Grandma Chickie at the nursing home. She hopes to be going home soon and this evening we will be moving some furniture around so she can get through her home easily. She's 97 and determined to go home again. What a lady!


  1. Love the photos they look little gems sewn on them. I hope I am able to live at home when I am 95, your grandmother is one feisty Lady, hope all goes well with her. Have a great day.


  2. Oh wow! I love these photos! Such perfect symmetry, isn't it? I'm so glad you're out in the garden and visiting. The painting can wait for a bit.
