Summer Fun in the Sun

Fun in the summer sunshine. 

Schweinfurth Art Center Auburn, NY

Summer is moving by quickly  - Hello end of July..  The garden is growing well & we celebrate the bounty we have..  Harvested many veggies:  lettuce, snow peas, swiss chard, kale, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, chives, thyme, oregano, sage, tomatilloes, beans, celery, mustard.  Waiting to enjoy radishes, beefsteak tomatoes, zucchini, Parsnips, leeks, cucumbers & fennel.



Susan B Anthony Square Rochester NY



It has been the spring & summer of celebrations.  In several cites:  Seneca Falls, Auburn, St Michaels, MD as well as home in Rochester this summer.  Women are a focus this year with the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in New York State.  My favorite part of the travel has been sharing stories and finding "sisters"  who have the same goals I do.  Family is more than blood ...as many have experienced in their lives.

My feet have not stopped since the Right to Run 19k 5k in Seneca Falls NY on 5/13/17. Happy to share my travel  & stories later this summer. A few of my trips  at the end of this post.

    Welcome to May


    Welcome to May starting off cool and wet here in Rochester, NY. Busy working on a wedding order and Mother's day gifts here in the studio.


    Happy to have the spring greens in the ground & they are enjoying all the rain we have had.  Rain, rain go away is often overheard around here.  We have had way too much rain recently after a sever drought last fall.  A rough start to the growing season here.




    What are you plans for the upcoming Mother's Day weekend?

    I am proud to be participating in the Second annual Right to Run 19K / 5K  in Seneca Falls NY Saturday.  It was fabulous last year and I know it will be amazing this year.  join us and see for yourself.

    Join us  Right To Run & bring you Mom or kids.

    April Garden Installed


    April is rapidly coming to a close.  The vegetable garden is installed or planted and the growing season has begun. We are happy to have a few greens harvested and enjoyed so far this month. As my regular readers know I am an avid gardener.  My inspiration for my jewelry designs come from nature.

     






    Planted in the ground so far are lettuce, mesclun, kale, broccoli, parsnips, leeks, & snow peas.  We have seedlings waiting to be installed:  tomatoes, cilantro, peppers, celery, kale, broccoli, & lettuce.

    These lovely garden pics were taken this morning between the rain showers. A beautiful spring day here in Rochester, NY,





    With Mother's Day quickly approaching, I have
    a few orders to finish and deliver. Jubilant customers and soon to be happy Mothers.

     PM with your special requests or use links

    Vacation Relax Road Trip



    Sandy Hook, NJ

     Where to begin sharing my adventure with you?  The idea for the Road Trip was to see friends & family in NJ & MD.  Started out Thursday morning and was home Tuesday night.  It was such a fantastic adventure for me meeting new people and reconnecting with others.  






    Asbury Park, NJ


    I believe these photos speak for themselves showing  the beauty of Mother Nature.  Big Thank you to an artist friend, Dawn in NJ for the scenic tour of Jersey.





    Artisan Bench



     These next three photos are from Brookside Gardens in
    Wheaton MD.  Difficult to choose my favorite one. The benches are in several places & stunning craftsmanship. Pretty Ivy in one of the conservatory and finally a Free library. 


    Swedish Ivy


    Free Library
    I felt a kinship to this community in Montgomery County immediately when I saw this,Free Library.  It is just like the ones here in my home in Rochester, NY.



    Have an enjoyable rest of your day.  May your gardens bring you joy every day and feed your dreams.
