Over 9,000 visits ~ I am all amazement, as Jane might say

~ Bird Bath and Black Eyed Susans We are in the middle of summer and I am already missing it.  The subtle changes in light that signal the coming of fall are beginning.  It’s such a joy to sit in the grass and write in my journal or watch our ducks tidy up the garden’s bugs.  I hate to see summer end.  This year the joy of being outside has been especially intense … a wonderful childlike happiness floods me when I can sit and watch the inhabitants of the lawn going about their business, oblivious to the woes of the economy or anything other than their own peculiar tasks.  I’ve not been watching TV (the news) and instead have been drawing, designing and reading when not outdoors.

I’m delighted that so many of you have visited and enjoyed my designs.
