THE CARE AND FEEDING OF A FRIEND

It is important to remember that we have people in our lives that go beyond our studio walls.  For me anyway.  I am so focused on getting more work done sometimes that I don't take time out to smell the roses (mountain flowers) and tend to friends...Today I did both...FUN...

I began another piece, but as a teaser I'm just showing you one tiny corner...:)  It will come out soon...

This morning before I left to drive 30 miles further into the mountains (to Bailey) I took a retrospective of the mountain flowers around our house at my husband's request.  I admit a couple are a bit blurry...but I promised I'd do this...so he could see one of each thing we have near the house...I think a couple may be weeds...I'm not that savvy in the flower area...but here they are! 
"Yep, I KNOW this is a weed...but it was so perfect!!"
Ok...these aren't actually flowers...but I love these little mushrooms my sweetie made out of rocks!!

It was a nice day up further...a little sprinkle here and there...but mostly fun to be with an old friend for a few hours...She had her grand kids, so we went off to a landmark around here for lunch...Coney Island...used to be in Aspen Park very near my home, but they had to move, so off the big ole hotdog went.  It was fun to visit a place I remember from my teen years...(I won't tell you just HOW long ago that was)

While in Bailey I visited a new gallery as a possible place for my work...but alas...this wonderful little co-op was much too much for my blood, and a little too far off the beaten trail...So onward I go looking and playing...

What a lovely day you had, and the flowers and other attractions in your "neck of the woods" are so fun to see.

Looking forward to seeing more than just a corner of the "teaser!"

Truly sounds like a wonderful day, Saundra. I see some clover amongst your flower photos. I also recognize a poppy and an iris. And of course, the dandelion gone to seed. Beyond that, I haven't a clue. I also love the rock mushrooms; so cool! Looking forward to seeing what becomes of the peek!
