Just posting zinnias today. I ripped out so many that the heap was taller than me. They are just some little stragglers left in the yard.
Here comes trouble. As soon as Stanley sees me I’ve got to stop everything for the cat who wants to be worn as a scarf. But the garden fairy is coming home early for Thanksgiving break due to the dangerous, smoky air in N. California so the center of the universe will soon have his girl in orbit.
At the beginning of the year I bought some seeds, I planted them - probably at the completely wrong time but they grew, the seedlings made it through a frosty winter and then they exploded into flower in the spring when I put them into this bouquet. This is my first proper year of growing flowers and it feels like such a miracle that it actually worked - that hundreds of flowers grew out of these tiny seeds and that they survived my pretty inexpert handling of them. It actually feels like magic so I guess I’m a gardener for life now and I’ll have to resign myself to spending all my money on plants and seeds forever.

Bees can control the frequency of their wing beats. Normally around 200 beats a second- so producing a frequency of 200 HZ.
It seems the subtle control of the beat of a bee’s wings creates the perfect hum - a frequency that vibrates the flower’s stamen anthers to release the pollen.
Amazing, subtle and outside our perception. Bees 🐝deserve our care and respect. 🐝💚
So strange to see the dyehouse lit up again tonight, as the days are counting down rapidly to opening it all feels pretty daunting right now. Fingers crossed, I pull this out the bag especially with the support of our new team, family & friends & of course all the talented guys finishing off the final touches :)
Gosh it's been SO long since we have floralled the amazing wedding venue @seclusions_bluemts...but with 4 confirmed bookings next year were counting down the days until we can soak up that gorgeous view behind their ceremony spot ♡
Em + Dave's bright florals 🌸
Thank you for the delightful images Jen x @silversalt_weddings
This one I think is finished I started it last week and worked since 7am to get a couple of smaller paintings ready to resin. This one is 16x20. My most common size for market shows. I do create larger pieces but most of them are by custom order. I have a small car so as a travelling artist size matters!
I hope this one makes you smile. Even when things are tough or someone treats you below par, try to smile and not take it personally, I am not preaching because this is something I am not always good at, however I am really trying to practice and incorporate this into my day to day adventures. Even those who are not a fan will have a hard time not being nice to you!
