We are now in May. Many spring flowers are coming forth. As it was fairly dry last month, I needed to water my container garden a few times. However, we have rain forecast all this week and that should do the trick. There’ll be no need to water for a while.
This May, we are in a new normal. Due to COVID-19, I’m still home bound. Therefore, when the rain breaks I’m getting out in my garden to do some pruning. I’m still at my spring cleaning and with this there is more to tackle, but it gets tiresome. Although I’m going out minimally, it’s only for essentials.
With regards to my art, I’m working on a new painting. Maybe because May also brings new beginnings, that’s where I’m with it too. In other words, I’m only in the initial stages of it and it’s another Pacific Northwest painting. In addition, I have a beautiful rhododendron in my garden all in white blooms that I must get out to photograph. So, hopefully, I can get some good ones of that for a future piece.
On another note, also in my life right now a family member is sick. Not with the coronavirus, but with age related illnesses. At times it’s hard to remain upbeat with this and our situation with the pandemic. I’m keeping positive, though. So, with that, I’ll sign off.
Thanks again, to all essential workers!
Keep creative. Stay Safe.
