A Few Excuses and a Tiny Preview

Unbelievably (!), when life becomes full, blogging is usually the first thing to go. Imagine things like meals, school, deadlines, dirty clothes, and research papers taking precedence! But I miss the consistent reflection of the living of  life. I love the way images can evoke the memory of the moment lived--like a quick snatch of a song caught in a breeze.
 A few melodies from the past month... 

An article for Newnan Coweta Magazine on the charming foxglove (Digitalis purpurea).

Another article for the garden issue on a friend, and fellow artist, whose home and garden so beautifully illustrate the melding and outworking of the strengths of marriage between a man and a woman.

A trip with my Second Born and Nephew
 to the Georgia Aquarium
 followed by an afternnoon of legislation at the Capitol.

A weekend in Macon with the winning Science Olympiad Team.

What do you do to celebrate 95 years?
A lovely lunch planned with 20+ dear friends. I was in charge of the centerpieces.

And always in the midst of everything...teaching and home and with my 9th grade class.

The luncheon...

A gift of a Cherokee Rose to mark her 95 years. Isn't she amazing?

Finally... the other thing that has been keeping me busy---
preparing for my upcoming exhibit at Sacred Heart Cultural Center.
This is my "gallery" in my home.
 In the center is a landscape with my Second Born, Neice, and Nephew
on one of their many walks down the beach at Cape San Blas
. It is flanked by the botanicals that will go into the show.
