Supper Harvest


Today I made time in the gardens. I know … this is already getting old, yet 'tis the season, and there's plenty of it remaining. I planted more seeds … squash, kale, napa cabbage, turnip, rutabaga and parsnip. I harvested broccoli, baby leeks and a couple of onions (pulled those up by mistake) and they will all be part of the giant frittata I'll be making for supper with our happy hens' eggs.


I invested my morning in preparing a background for this week's journal spread, and played a little in the studio with some other things. I kinda wish I'd captured the background before I spread the gesso over the space upon which my image will go. It was one of those backgrounds that you hesitate working over, know what I mean? But it's a background. That was the intention all along, so you add to it. In any event, the gardens seem to be showing up everywhere in my life. And that is as it "should" be.

Now I'm going to fix a hot cup of tea, head out to the deck, sit, take a nice long, deep breath, followed by a long, slow exhale … and dream a bit.

That's what I made today.

Peace.

Beautiful background. The garden never gets old this time of year. What a wonderful supper to enjoy fresh from the garden.

I felt the rhythm of your day through your words...so peaceful and rooted. Made me wish I'd spent the day in your garden and shared a good breath over a cup of tea!
