This is the farm right across the road from my house. In winter that's the barn that I almost always have in my sunset photos. I love that old barn. It makes me feel connected to this land and the people that lived here before me.
This is the first year rotation of corn for this field. For the past three years it has been alfalfa. It's feed corn so it will stand way into the fall before the farmer will cut it down.
I am in the process of bringing my indoor plants that spent the summer outside, back inside. This involves re potting them into bigger pots, making my own special potting soil blend in the back of the tractor wagon and then soaping the plants down to make sure I'm not bringing in any invited guests. My house has seemed bare inside without my plants. I will be happy to see them back in their usual places and in bigger pots.
When we built this house we took into consideration my love of greenery and put a shower in the sunroom.
This amuses some of my friends.
The shower has a duel purpose, rise off before you get in the hot tub and easy access to rinse off a dusty plant and give it a good drink of water.
All my big plants are on wooden casters, that John made, so I can roll them from one room to another.
Hey, I never said my life was exciting 24/7.
John is working over in the barn studio. I am so excited about this getting finished I start to smile when ever I think about it.
Not, that I haven't loved having my sewing studio in the house and my mixed media things down in the garage. I consider that lucky that I even have such wonderful space to be able to have two areas.
It just will be nice to have everything in one place. My avatar is a picture of the barn. My new studio space will be on the second floor. Pictures for sure, when there is something to show you guys.
I have my granddaughter here and she's napping right now so I'm going to close and go give my Lil Red doll another coat of gesso. You know when you sand between coats the cloth begins to feel like leather. Very cool.
