...is the kind when the weather permits me to take my studio outside and work in the backyard, surrounded that much more closely by the smells and sounds I love.
It's an extra-special treat when I get the chance to do this during the few weeks the lilacs are blooming; the whole neighborhood smells heavenly and when I look up, this is the view from my little drawing table.
Mmmm. Taking a deep breath I peer out across the yard and - hey, wait...
...yeah, that's what you thought you saw.
I let her have this one hole because it just makes her so darn happy. I justify this by saying it keeps her from digging my garden beds. Every now and then I'll fill it up and cover it with more turf, but really that's just so she can have more fun getting back down to the good part again.
There's beauty in imperfection, right? That's kind of our landscaping and decorating motto around here.
Besides, when you're smelling this, everything really is perfection.
Happy May, everyone.
