a new flower in the garden

martha washington's . . .  i hadn't heard of them until we discovered a few in the "leave 'em for dead" bin  . . . we got a great price on them, and slowly but surely they've returned from their state of near goneness . . .    this is the first flower they've produced . . . .

studio buddies

when i paint, these two like to keep me company. sometimes resting their paws on my shoulders to watch, sometimes racing across my lap in the middle of one of their scraps . . . .
usually though, they snuggle together and sleep . . .
