Friday July 4th


I’m still very busy in the domestic front these days, alternating between gardening outdoors and purging indoors. My studio is looking less like a hurricane hit it, but I can’t speak yet for the areas where the returning family has moved in, for it is hard to downsize!

All this work during a heat wave too! This morning we had a light shower but it’s still humid and too warm in the house. Taking a break from work, I was sitting on our deck and spotted the first bloom on my young tibouchina plant – a deep velvety purple that this camera could not capture accurately – but here it is.

Wishing a happy Independence Day to my American family, friends and readers!
