Google+ What I Made Today: Spirals

Spirals

I made my way to the gardens before the rains returned this afternoon and was greeted by one of the ever-present reminders of the spiral of life. I paused in the drama of the moment to take in the stage, the costume, the story ... And I filled up. So did the skies.

As the drizzle increased I hunkered down in my little hut and made my way to a piece of my own spiral of life. There I continued some started projects and began others ...

I'm looking forward to creating my nature-inspired ACEO work again, here in the growing heat of summer's expansion.

Ashe. Ashe.

While I love the leaf print shown in Win a Whimsy I am uncertain about what you made today -- backings for other pieces of art, perhaps? I'm not awfully imaginative sometimes.

What an AWESOME shot!! Bravo to the see-er of the micro drama as well!
ps.
how is *my* nature plaque whimsy doing? :D

Beautiful photo! Well done!

Aww, Leslie - you are more imaginative than you give yourself credit for! :) Today I made some fresh beginnings to little ACEO works of art - just the first couple of layers ... which will continue. So yes, "backings for other pieces of art" is perfectly fitting!

(I like to make my readers think and squirm a bit!)

Sherrie, cat, tilt and lora ... thank you, though it's only the "best" photo I could capture under the circumstances ... to me, it's only fair - at best, though perfectly passable for this blog! :D

Those japanese beetles are pretty, but very destructive. Their grubs eat you lawn from underneath. Nasty little bugs!

Laura Rose said...

lots of insect activity in our gardens this year...must be all the rain! :)

Walk in the Woods said...

Eva - you're so funny!

Yes, Daven - they *can* be quite destructive.

Laura - for me, it's the slugs that are abundant this year ... everything else seems in balance!

I love how the beetle is about to exit, Stage Left. That is a wonderful capture!

Thankfully, my daily roaming chickens are helping to reduce the destructive bug population this year...

Oh Sinclair ... you remind of how much I do want chickens. They are voracious tick-eaters too, I hear!
