299 :: Practice

299_salve

I’m working on a piece about making calendula salve. Today was practice day. I tried to take photos too late in the afternoon . . . and the long shadows are bothering me! Tomorrow we’ll try again.

This is the beauty of the 365 project: so many opportunities for practice!

I’m watching them carry him, make bubbles, laugh, chase one another, and wind their way down the driveway, to the mailbox. Gosh, I love them so much.

Garden Therapy

297_carrots

Our garden is still so abundant! We went outside this afternoon, planning to go for a walk but ended up just hanging out in the garden. Ellen was singing to her carrots, and Wallace was in dirt heaven pulling out green meat radishes. Amabel was gathering flowers and leaves for a collage, and I took about a hundred pictures. It was garden therapy at its best after a long week!

Then we came inside and the girls painted with flowers.

October brilliance, I am in awe of you!

(I pretended to not notice the state of the kitchen as Wallace crawled around emptying drawers and cupboards . . . while I stood on the dinning room table, taking photos and admiring their beautiful work!)
