All the colors of spring have really made being outdoors delightful.

Don't really use alot of color in my work but it seems to be creeping in. I finally have some new ideas and designs going on. Upcoming shows are right around the corner. Larkspur in June and art in the park in July. It is so nice when you plant something and it comes back the following year. These columbine flowers are really doing well at my front porch they have a jewel like whimsy about them that always makes me smile. This is my first Japanese maple . They are so pretty. Im hoping to get another waterfall version this fall. Good ole' Sophie keeps on trucking along, shes 12 and the steps can challenge her so we try to get her to go up the hill.
