I’m back from my hiatus and hope to begin blogging again soon… or at least trying to stay current with the blogs I follow. For my first entry I would like to share the cup of strawberries I picked from my garden this morning after having my first coffee. These are so much sweeter than the varieties one can get at the grocery. They are magically delicious!
in the Pacific Northwest
Today is Labor Day and I’ plan to spend some time working in the garden. The season is winding down here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and I have some clean-up to do, although there is still quite a bit of color left to enjoy. I have found that many creative people are also avid gardeners; I think this may be related to the shared elements of color, design and hands-on work that are common to both pursuits.
Last year I created a video of my summer garden. I had a particularly nice garden (some years are better than others) and wanted to be able to remember it during the nine months of gray we tend to have in this part of the world… and thus my video was born. I hope you enjoy watching it, too. Happy Summer!
