Marsh- Thank you Sharon!

Though the blossoms and chartreuse greens in the landscape say 'spring' -- our sudden plunge into into freezing temperatures suggest that we're back to fall ...! With a sweatshirt back on and a chill in the air, I was inspired by Sharon's wonderful capture of a fall river walk www.flickr.com/photos/dubonnet/6228002665/ and she graciously permitted me to use her photo as a reference for this painting!

 

THANK YOU SHARON!!!

 

I love Sharon's work -- from flowers to landscapes - each image is so beautiful and inspirating!!! Take a look yourself!

 

I spent the last few days preparing for the plant sale, repotting plants, cleaning bits of the greenhouse, making signs, and all the minute details that go into a 'sale-a-bration' fundraiser. I'll be as busy next week as well - so my computer time has been shortened indeed.

 

Today our volunteers return and despite the last few cool days, our kale, chard, lettuce are ready for harvest for the hungry. We'll also work a bit outdoors to tidy up the grounds -- so again, a busy day.

 

Hope your day is great ... Stay warm ....!
