A gorgeous sunny Saturday. I'll have to tear myself away from the new embroidery I'm doing to go for a walk and get me some of it!
Those magnificent densely perfumed lilies I showed you a few posts back have all opened and died now but for two that are still deliciously pink. The rest have faded to a whisper of purple like this one.
The delicate veining in the paper crisp petals still shows, so crepe-textured and fine.

I had thought it might work for a collage project I'm working on.

Much talk of seeds and gardens around here. Vegetables and flowers. What we really need is a shade garden, starting with the shade. Perhaps a small tree or two, perhaps a grape arbour. Planning is key, but dreaming is too.
It won't be long now. Staying focussed on what is true.
