I have always liked being in the woods. I love the quiet, the smell and peaceful feeling that I experience by being there. I joke with my kids about going to Alaska or some remote place to live off the grid. In actuality, I hope that I end up somewhere surrounded by trees or close to it. Some peaceful spot in nature like Big Sur, Bonny Doon or the Santa Cruz (CA) mountains. And I continue to dream.
This page is from my sketch book and is about what I think is happening in the woods when no one is around. Trees morning trees, how beautiful.
On a different note. I've decided to try my hand at gardening. My mom bought me this portable green house. It was super easy to put together and let me tell you, it was scorching hot in there today. So far I have a couple tomato plants, peppers, cilantro, strawberries, rosemary, sage (my daughters request), and thyme. A girlfriend dropped off some flower seeds and a tray to start them off in.
The funny thing is that all I really want to do is just claim it as additional personal space and move in and do some artwork in there. Anyone got any suggestions for growing veggies in pots? Or any experience/tips on green house growing? I have not developed a green thumb yet, I haven't a clue to what I'm doing, I just want to be in the green house it's so darn cute!
As always, thanks for your visit today, I appreciate ya!!! Until the next blog...enjoy!
