hole in my heart

So take a good look at this proud old tree....because the next time you see it I will probably have strapped myself to it in an effort to save it from Hubby's chainsaw.
This poor old tree hasn't much left to it...just a lot of heart. (fyi this is the thickest view....from the side it's nay a sliver) The trunks as hollow as my cookie jar after my sweet tooth acts up.
Poor thing. It looks as if a slight breeze may knock it to the ground for a final count. Or a nesting bird may topple it like a frail old man.
Amazed am I to see it sprout anew every Spring.
Happy am I to say "In your face" to hubby.
So for now the return of blooming buds have twarted hubby's efforts.
Go tree go!

Maid Service

So the question was "how does a gal who paints cows and flowers adapt to a sea-themed artist show?".
I pondered for quite a while.
Finally I got my sea legs and just dove in.
So your eyes do not deceive you.....I painted mermaids....yes, little ol' me......and had fun doing so!
A week to go 'til the show!
Song Of The Sea
2008 Spring Soiree
The Gallery at The Country Life
40 Main Street
Warwick , NY
Sunday May 18th 11-4
hope to sea you there!!

another mouth to feed


Ok 2 out of 3 ain't least that's want the song claims.
So 2 precious little peeps hatched out of 3. I'm not a gambler, but I's put a bet on those odds! Hubby, lend me some money?
So our latest is Dander. Thrilled and proud am I to see that they will be feather-footed! As long as those feather-legs don't go after mine - we'll get along just fine.
