Hello February . . .

Hello, friends. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I missed you and I hope you’ve been well. I decided to take a brief sabbatical from blogging during the month of January, in order to focus my attention on painting. Well, the days spilled into weeks, and before I knew it, an entire month had passed. Here we are, in February.

Although it’s still winter, there’s something about the increasing light that makes this month a bit less brutal in the northern climes. The weather has been very cold this year, but the atmospheric conditions have made for some spectacular winter walks. How have you been? Do you embrace the season and get outside on snowshoes, skates or skis to enjoy the sparkling, snow-covered landscape, or do you prefer to curl up inside with hot chocolate, seed catalogs and gardening books?

I’ll be here a bit more this month; sharing images from around the garden, forest and beyond. Thanks for stopping by!

Stopping to Smell the Roses …

July 1st, 2011 § 4 comments § permalink

From Garden to Desktop: Rosa Bibi Maizoon & Rosa De Rescht in a Porcelain Vase by Heidi Loewen

When I glanced at my calendar this morning, I could hardly believe my eyes. July 1st already? It seems impossible, but here in the States, the long Fourth of July weekend —filled with picnics, marching bands, parades and fireworks— is upon us!  My schedule has been so jam packed with projects and deadlines, I feel as if the summer —only just begun— is already blowing by.

Wait, wait … Remember to stop and smell the roses!

When I find myself getting too caught up in the day to day, I look to the natural world to restore my sense of balance. A stroll through the the luxuriously fragrant garden at dawn, or a walk along the river at twilight —filled with graceful swans and fuzzy ducklings— always seems to set me right …
