Summer Days….


Each fairy breath of summer, as it blows with loveliness, inspires the blushing rose. 

~Author Unknown

Summer is so magical. All the color and all the life of each lazy day. Even as we run children around to swimming lessons or slumber parties it is easy to pack a pad of watercolor paper and paints in our bag and find a free moment to catch our breath and splash down some paints. I find it so relaxing to sit in the backyard, surrounded by my garden and take five minutes to paint, draw or write.It is wonderful to catch my breath, to look at all the beauty around me, and count my many blessings.Just a single poppy or a bumble bee can make me smile and make my day a millions time better.


Life can have its bumpy patches, but it can also be so beautiful! Just BELIEVE!
