Rainyness

Today was an amazing day, weather wise.  We wont talk about the “plandemic” news. But it was a moist day with sporadic soft rain here and there.  The smell of the desert was nurturing.  The cloud covering set a mood.  My plants loved it. And I could have stayed in my garden all day but alas…. This week I am getting ready for the Tucson Museum of Art Spring Artisan Market.  Starts the Friday the 13th, ends Sunday the 15th.  10-5 each day. It’s on the street folks.  Open air festival.  No need to worry.   I have hand sanitizer….

Spring has Sprung!

Here in Tucson, we are in our spring..right now.  But don’t blink….for the 90 temps will be here shortly.  I have been loving the weather and trying to be out doors as much as possible. Either in my backyard gardening, smelling flowers, admiring the hummers and bees or hiking up in our mountains,  I love it all. Sunday’s hike up Pima Canyon:     My mosaic workshops and clay classes are in full swing now and the art shows are winding down.  I have a few more shows in April and a possible open studio in May.  I’m still deciding…

Red October

October being just a few days away, I would like to remind folks that October 6, next Saturday is my last mosaic workshop for the season.  It’s been such fun helping my students design, glue and grout!
