Some folks say their dogs are like their kids. I love my dogs, I truly do, but they're not my children. My plants on the other hand...
My garden at the beginning of summer.
As the season winds down for all of those wonderful tomatoes and peas and fruits, I'm clearing out my garden. I'm planting bulbs, garlic- that sort of thing. Plants are what I think about when I don't realize I'm thinking about anything. I get a lot of satisfaction from painting and observing them. The cooler weather means it'll be a while before I see much color again, but my babies will keep me thinking and drawing throughout the season.
