Jerry's Garden

He designed the front garden and pulled me in to help choose plants. How fun to work together in the soil!

Oh to be a kid again!

Looking up

to a riot of spring colors:

Akebia (chocolate vine)
Crab Apple
Crab Apple
Crab Apple in B&W - such delicate blossoms
Lenten Rose in B&W - okay I looked down!

Winter storms stripped beaches down the island and deposited piles on our beach. So many logs - some with gnarled roots and limbs, others straight as telephone poles, all weathered a silvery brown and smooth from their rolling journey across the water. What is their story? Where are they from and where are they going?

So glad they stopped by!

Artfest in full color

Oh to wear red and purple, with rings on every finger and bells on every toe and to drive around eating desert first!

You simply can't miss another ArtFest!

p.s. doesn't Joie look fabulous against that door?!
