Our cottage garden after an early morning rain. Everything is lush and dewy.
I'm thinking about mixing up a moss mousse to turn our little garden gnome fuzzy and green.
To make moss grow, simply blend one part moss to four parts of yogurt or buttermilk
and paint on your garden pottery or planter. A damp, shady spot helps too!
I worked on my planters yesterday, repotting and giving them some much needed attention.
I tend to group them by color as you might expect. I love mixing in succulents.
They have such great colors and textures. Plus, they are hardy plants,
which means they'll survive my absentmindedness when it comes to watering and care!

One nice thing about having a really wet spring is a very high creek.
We found a perfect spot where the water pools and is deep enough to swim.
Our dear Birdie has taken to the water like a little fish!
She makes quite a splash as she fearlessly jumps in to fetch sticks.
I'm hoping this little Birdie has distracted you ever so slightly from the fact that my latest painting,
a new covey of birds, which I posted about last week is not quite finished.
However, I'm happy to report that I'm really almost done. Seriously.
It's just taking a tiny bit longer that expected. Stay tuned.

New paintings in progress and quite a chirpy group too!
A large covey of birds, a large feather collection, and a few insects too!
I hope to be finished by the weekend.
