Feeling Waspish Tuesday, Aug 26 2008 


  1. Of, relating to, or suggestive of a wasp.
  2. Easily irritated or annoyed; irascible.
  3. Indicative of irritation, annoyance, or spite: a waspish remark.

I have been feeling that way. My mind too busy to focus on anything: work. art. family.

Fortunately, this fine fellow visited me and put my feelings in perspective. I think he will become a quilt, and I believe I will leave the stinging barbs to him.

Maysville Saturday, May 24 2008 

I went to Maysville, Ky., for a few days. Maysville is at a bend in the Ohio River, across from Aberdeen, Ohio. It’s a pretty town with a great deal of pride in its history and its preservation.

My husband was there to research; I took the time to check out some beautiful architecture and find some good photos. Hope you enjoy.

Spring in Louisville Sunday, May 18 2008 

I spent some time walking in the neighborhood, taking in the beauty of life and nature. I thought I would share. Enjoy!

A gift from David Wednesday, May 14 2008 

My friend David sent me some photos of his iris in bloom. David has a wonderful way with flowers, and his love of his garden helps me see how beautiful the spring can be in Louisville. Thank you for the gift, Dave.

Flowers in the spring Sunday, May 4 2008 

It was a beautiful day today, the flowers were quite beautiful. I hope you enjoy them.

My Pretty Rose Tree

A flower was offered to me,
Such a flower as May never bore;
But I said ‘I’ve a pretty rose tree,’
And I passed the sweet flower o’er.

Then I went to my pretty rose tree,
To tend her by day and by night;
But my rose turned away with jealousy,
And her thorns were my only delight.

William Blake
