Taking Some Time

Plant Assortment
Hanging Baskets

The gallery I work in has an annual juried exhibtion with a local art league every spring. Beverly, one of the lovely artists who participates, came in this week bearing gifts of sweet pea and poppy bouquets and offers of succulents from her garden to anyone who was interested. Off I motored to her house after work, and returned home with a trunk laden full of goodies. James and I spent Wednesday in the small patio area we call a garden with our plants, both new and old. (Well, he spent the time in the garden planting, I swept and lit candles. I'm hopeless when it comes to gardening.) At the end of the day, we pulled our chairs from the dining nook outside to enjoy a glass of wine and a can of beer among the candles and potted goodness. (That's me in the last photo, wearing my latest favorite long cardi from Urban Outfitters. I really shouldn't have, but I couldn't resist...)
