Just popped in for a hasty virtual hug before I twirl my scarf around my neck and head off to Artfest. This is my 4th year at Artfest; my second year of teaching there. How I love the solitary drive up I-5 with my big notebook at my side, writing down an occasional idea as the scenery passes by. I do some of my best thinking in the car. And I'm so excited about Artfest; every year I think it cannot possibly be better than the previous year and every year it gets better. It is a gathering of open hearts and sharing.
These were in the camera so I'll share them. Peppers in the foreground and tomatoes in the rear. Husky little brutes and swarthy too; growing so fast they'll need re potting soon.
Tomatillos for the green salsa and mole. It does a heart good to see growing things. Notice how the patient gardener (John) has supported each sprout with a twist tie. He is the best plant mother in the world.
Talk amongst yourselves. I'll see you in about a week. xoxoxo
