The red tulips I planted a year and half ago multiplied beautifully and put on quite a show this year, as you can see. A few (and I do mean few) warm days pushed them to full open bloom quickly after sitting in bud stage for 2 or 3 weeks. Even though they are transient, I do love them!
As you can see, they surround the fenced garden area, which is right beside the garden and greenhouse. Perfect for multi-tasking.
The lack of posts on my part demonstrates that time has been spent helping daughter Kolya settle into her new digs here on the property, having grandson Jake and little granddaughter Gigi here, and digging out the bad garden soil we got to replace it with new. Not much studio time, I'm afraid...although I do have several pieces started in the process of discovering where they are going. I'll be showing you some of them within a few days.
The weekend is packed with me having to run to Portland tomorrow to pick up grandson Jake for the weekend, and from there to Salem for Nils's art opening at Bush Barn, then home for a full weekend of entering into the world of an 11 year old boy! It's always rejuvenating and fun to be around him. Such energy, creativity, and interesting thinking to observe.
I hope all of you are having more of a spring than we are! Still chilly with not a lot of sun, but gradually improving.
