Sweet, sweet summertime. As July slowly slides into August, I find myself falling into a familiar mid-summer rhythm. Up before dawn with the songbirds, I brew a pot of coffee and head outside to water containers on the terrace. From there, I meander on down to the potager with my harvest basket, where fresh vegetables and flowers await. The heirloom tomatoes are ripening quickly now, and fistfuls of basil fill my basket. There’s much work to be done at this time of year, here in the kitchen garden, but more of that on the weekend. Now it’s time to head back indoors. I have drawings to finish and fresh paintings to begin.

August belongs to me, my garden, my artwork and my studio… I can hardly wait!
