Penny’s Art

We’ve had such a mild winter, unlike the millions back east, out west, and up north who have been pummeled with record snow and ice. It was warm enough to work in the yard this week. I cut down spent perennials from last season, and noticed green sprouts all over the place. Iris, and the early blooming bulbs are peaking out, asking to be nipped in the bud by frost. Frost we will get. Snow? Not so much. I fear that many plants and trees are going to suffer from this dry winter, but what can you do?

This is a week of catch up after last weeks trip over the hill. Despite what I’ve already done, I still need to do book inventory, a newsletter, tax preparation, get my car’s recall fixed, and pick out paint for my bathroom. I’ve worked at the list for two days and can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. At least, I won’t get run over by a train.

I’ve taken pictures of some of my sister’s art work and I’m going to put them into a book for the family. I’ll show some of them here for the next few blogs. She used a wide variety of pencil, charcoal, ink, and watercolor. Enjoy!IMG_0208
