First things first is good advice. I don’t always take it. I have a bunch of business to attend to, including adding a mandala to the website so a friend can order it. Also need to tackle entering my expenses and sales into Excel — my least favorite thing to do, but it needs to be done.
These poppies are amazing, all crinkly and purple. Their name is Early Grey and you can see why. The hydrangea petals are papery and fragile. They come from a friend who passed in January. I miss her a lot, and love working with these, thinking of her as I do. The yellow blooms are verbascum. They grow on tall, healthy spikes. During the winter they die back, and look forlorn.
