@oxbeaux Nasturtiums are one of my favorite salad additions with their peppery flavor and they do well w/o a full day of sun. My little secret garden keeps my spirits from plummeting. I do not get enough sun to grow container veggies, but we do have a nice fresh market with locally grown produce.

@oxbeaux I have found the connect community an informative, supportive community to hang out with…Welcome to the neighborhood.

And the delightful mixed pot that greeted me one morning. Photo does not do this justice. for me, it was breathtaking.

@gingerw You have been one busy gal! Enjoyed seeing the progress of your rock pile. Hard to beat that morning light and no matter how good the photo still nothing like the real thing. My day lilies burst forth on the 4th and the mixed pots have done their thing. Will attach photos. Be careful with those Herculean endeavors. Sorry, being repetitive.
@jimhd Looking forward to images from you as well. Beware that coveting. 🙂
To all of the other lovers of playing in the dirt and muscle building-nice to know I have had company although I now work on a much smaller scale. Sad that so few see the splendor in the dirt.

@rosemarya Hi Rosemary. Your was the first I read this morning. Now i have a warm heart too. The size is 4" x 6". My son had snapped this photo and it is one of his favorites so I turned it into a painting. He and his family gave me a subscription to Sketchbox for Christmas last year. It has helped to keep my creative juices running and to try new materials. What an amazing gift that keeps on giving!! Thank you for returning the warmth.

If it were not for art and music this isolation thing would be unbearable-for me. Still missing being with family so I feel closer when I do paintings of my little scamp (grandson). Keeps my mind from the dark places.

@gingerw Totally understand about the baked goods caution. At your request I am attaching the watercolor "If wishes were horses beggars would ride". this painting is an older one (2013). It is 19.5" x 21". Have you finished with your rock garden? I did get some flowers going in containers. Not as many this year. It will suffice and helps me to enjoy my morning coffee even more.
I have been doing a lot of creating and also going on daily walks for a break from the creative process and myself. I have these episodes of getting on my own nerves. There are several sweet pea vines blooming in the field across the way. Smells divine. I picked a bouquet to bring home.
Hey, even chopping veggies can be an art!! I am encouraged and inspired by the many ways others here are being creative.

@gingerw I have already done so. Once I locate it I will post the painting. Don't hold your breath.
