Random Wednesday

  1. After much discussion, the title “One With The Rod” has been changed. It is now “One With The Stream”. ¬†While playing horseshoes our friend Mort says, “I’m one with the pit”. I took the saying to my studio, but felt more at one with the pencil than with the paper. Since a fishing pole is an arm extension, I thought it was fitting that my husband would feel one with his fishing rod. Not so! He is “One With The Stream”.
  2. This is how Zeke looked through my steering wheel as we waited for his vaccination turn at the pet clinic on Saturday. He was happy to sit on my lap and get combed while we waited, but it took some persuasion to get him to climb up after I opened the cat carrier. This little upsetting situation had to be repeated 2 more times. We were not having fun.
  3. The 8 Hidden Gardens paintings have been delivered to the gardener extraordinaire for first pick before they all go public. ‘sides, I didn’t photograph them all yet, and 2 aren’t even signed! Here is one:
  4. On a recent walk, a dogwood in bloom had blossoms with 5 petals and 6 petals. I think that is peculiar. Does anyone out there know anything about this behavior??

    Hmmm…it is peculiar. Quincy, Illinois is Dogwood territory so I will get my sleuthing cap on and investigate (i.e. ask the natives!)

    In studying the photo, I think the one just might have 4 petals instead of 5. I’ve seen this several times – just happened to have my camera handy for this one. I’d be interested to hear what your experts say, Deb!
