Henry the cat seemed to be in a funny mood today and luckily I had my camera with me. He got in the little child's chair in the garden and posed for me. Before that he rolled around on the old oak table under the trees. Hope he brings a smile to your face!
The little felt birdies are multiplying! I got more cut out and started working on them between customers at our store yesterday.
Friday I got in a visit to my friend, Sally and her new goat kids. She made us a delicious salad for lunch with her homemade goat cheese and I had fresh goat milk as well. So good. Sally, a friend for almost 40 years is a knitter, weaver and Waldorf teacher as well as the goat milker, cheese maker and mom to 2 beautiful kids. We walked around her farm admiring all the flowers in bloom and the old olive trees and oaks . She is only minutes from the beach so we got in a beach walk at Rincon cove. It seems like summer is the only time we get to visit so we are planning a beach day soon.
This giant oak tree is one of the largest and oldest living oaks in California and is located on Sally's farm. I always have to go visit this tree when I am there...it is so amazing....the limbs are so massive- they are larger than most tree trunks! Age estimates range from 500 to 1000 years old.
Beautiful blooming Jacaranda's in the backyard....one of my favorite colors~
Thursday found me at the Art Clinic in Solvang. Here, Colleen embroiders in the background with one of Sukey's new paintings in front.
Here is Sukey working on another of her wonderful paintings. Syd showed up later and we all got to visit and catch up on all our latest news. Hoping for a beach day on Tuesday with all the art girls.
If there are waves we will be boogie boarding!
