The cat crop is coming in well this year.
The snapdragons, my favorite sun-loving annual, are looking snappy.
The shade garden getting it's touch of morning sun.
Gardening always puts me into a meditative state. As my hands weeded and pruned and deadheaded, Right Brain was busy pondering what to do with the next bear. Another 'Unusual Material Collage' seemed like a fun idea...but what to use? Right Brain went right on contemplating the possibilities as the tending and cutting and watering continued.
Then I stopped. The answer was right at my fingertips.
I toured the garden, eying and evaluation, snipping and plucking. The prunings were brought inside, and an organic collage was created.

All in all, absolutely the sweetest smelling art project I think I have ever worked on. :-)
