This summer was spent in the flower garden. After many busy years of art fairs the perennial beds had become overgrown and weedy. This summer I decided to cut back on the art fairs and do some housekeeping in the garden, gathering fresh inspiration each day for new work I am starting to develop. The days and weeks flew by and it is September already. As the summer draws to a close, I realize that I have not written a new blog in a long time. With cooler mornings I will be at the computer more as I wait for the dew (and soon the frosts) to dry off before the final trimming and raking, and I will be spending more time indoors working on all those new inspirations.
