T Stand for Tuesday------ It's Summer Time!!!!

Hi Elizabeth!! 
I finally made it back :) It's been forever since I've posted here or even on this blog . I guess I'm just not as wordy as I used to be. :) 
It's Summer Time here! Hot summer nights and lots of yummy things from the garden or Farmers Markets . 
It's really been an amazing summer here...cooler than normal ... and the garden has done very well. What didn't get eaten by the deer that is. The flower gardens are what make me happiest though.

Today I emptied the dehydrator and filled it back up.... Lots of herbs for teas and tinctures ...YUMMMMM....

There's my drink herbal iced tea that I've become totally addicted to this summer :) 
Stuffed  zucchini for supper and that's my post for

Paint Party Friday

It's Friday :) 
Thanks again to Eva and Kristin!!! This group is amazing and so helps to keep me grounded in my art. Even when I don't post every week. 
I've been trying to keep up this just hasn't happened. One thing or another just keeps getting in my way. Life can be that way sometimes. 
I have been doing small bits and pieces of art. Just never seem to manage to get anything completed.  But I do have some things to share. 
The first is one of the paintings I did for Summer of Color . One of the two that I did manage to get done. I don't even remember the week it was for. 

Next is another set of pages in one if my art journals..

Neither of which are finished but I like where both are going so far. 
From my last post on PPF  here is where I am on the big wood painting..

I've added dried leaves from my yard and more gesso.... still not sure at all where this one is going at all. Today I have the urge to add dragon flies to hopefully I will get that done before I dash off to physical therapy. 
I have not done a thing with of the collage of my sister and I ...kinda stuck there. 
The flower gardens are thriving...

 In spite of the invasion of Japanese Beetles! 

I managed to get away for a couple of days and visit with my daughter and her family.

Just one thought for today
