Happy Sunday!

Well it has been raining now for days. My garden is drenched but hopping it will survive. With that I am vegging out today, watching a series on Netflix. I also have broccoli soup on the stove and will make pizza for dinner. 

In the meantime late last night I spent time in the art room.

Playing with color


Have a great Sunday Everyone!

Garden Saturday

Good Saturday Morning. 
I have been up for awhile, taking care of business, and a trip to the store. Just a few items that I needed.
I still can't believe how the tourists will not comply to the mask rule in Oregon. It is mostly men and they are so smug about it. That is my bitch for the day.
It has been storming for the last 3 days. My garden just loves the rain water. I can literally watch the sunflowers grow. The take a lot of water.  I planted mostly cool weather plants this year, and it is a good thing I did. We are not having any type of hot weather this year. 
So here goes. Flowers are finally blooming.

There it is for now. OMG! the sun just came out. Hurrraaayyyy.

Have a great Saturday everyone!

TAD with Rain In The Water

Hello and good morning.

All week I was getting prepared to create some art for TAD. Rain's theme this week is, "In the Water" Some how in my old, feeble brain I just read, "water".
Ya know, with nothing in it. So you  will have to imagine all of the things that are in the ocean. Or I guess one could say, "There are waves in the water"
 
To comply with the theme I have some old art.
 
Reflection in the water
 
My Nan, always took very good care of her paint brushes. In fact I have quite a few of her oil brushes that I still use. They are over 100 years old. My Nan lived to be 104 and painted up to her last days. So, yes the brushes are that old. One of her tricks was to clean the brushes then give them a soak in backing soda and cold water. Here are my brushes 
in the water.

T Stands for T Art

Hi Everyone!

Today is T for Tuesday with Elizabeth and my art today is abstract wild flowers. It has been GREY overcast and thick heavy marine layers since Saturday. Well, we get a marine layer every night but the no sunshine works on me, and not in a good way.

So I decided to create abstract wildflowers

And here are some real flowers from my yard.  
It's taking such a long time for flowers to bloom.
Ya know NO SUN! :) 





Since I haven't taken photos of food and drink this week I am showing my sculpted leather tea cup art.
This, and a few other floating art pieces were featured
in several art gallery showings. Ya know before covid.


That's it for now. I wish everyone a happy day.

Movie Monday

Happy Monday Everyone! 

Today is Movie Monday. My daughter and I were talking about the movie "Red Dawn" with Patrick Swayze.
There was a remake of this movie in 2012, but you just can't replace Patrick and the rest of the cast from 1984.
In an alternate 1980s, the United States stands alone as communism grows stronger. When Soviet soldiers invade a small Colorado town, brothers Jed (Patrick Swayze) and Matt Eckert (Charlie Sheen) escape with friends to the forest. With their father, Tom (Harry Dean Stanton), a prisoner of the invading army, the children decide to fight against the Soviets. As the country comes under increasing attack, the group teams up with Lt. Col. Andrew Tanner (Powers Boothe) to take back their town.   
I own this movie but it can be seen on most streaming venues. 
 
Another movie, that I own but can be seen on some streaming venues is, "Orphan". 
Filmed in 2009 and a true story based on the life of
Barbora Skrlová, a woman who was discovered posing as a 13-year-old boy in Norway after she had escaped from another family. Devastated by the loss of their unborn baby, Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard) decide to adopt a child. At the orphanage, both feel drawn to a little girl (Isabelle Fuhrman) named Esther, and soon the couple take their new daughter home. But when a dangerous series of events unfolds, Kate begins to suspect that there is something evil lurking behind the child's angelic exterior.


Well that is it for today. Enjoy your Monday.

Garden Saturday

Good Saturday Morning!

It's Garden Saturday and even with the wicked wind the garden is doing great! We have lots of Grey Squash and peas and I traded some for smoked trout last week. My friend's husband fishes everyday and has a great smoke recipe for the fish. It is so good!
Now for the garden. 


 This tom plant has blooms!

 

Peppers are hard to grow here but these are doing OK.

 

Cucumbers are finally growing. It has been too cold. I am hoping this month will be warmer

On the other hand the dill loves the cool weather.

 

Poppies are

so pretty

 

This photo was taken last week and these peas have flowers so more peas on the way.

 

Cabbage
peas, and
the tall plant with the yellow flowers is broccoli.


I know 
broccoli is
a cool weather plant but that works for the OR. coast. 

 

Yellow squash. Last year I didn't get much, this year a good crop.

 

Lots of grey squash

 

I moved these carrots outside. They are doing better than in the GH.

 

The cabbage is doing so well and the leaves are huge and healthy.

 

These beans are doing very well. Beans take forever to grow here so I am happy with this growth. I have 5 different types of bean plants.

 

Potatoes 
do very
well here.

 

3 types of
lettuce 
all clean

 

Drying dill and oregano.

 
Today it's raining so the garden is loving it. You know this next part. Even if you have a square foot of deck space you can grow something. So just try it!
Have a great day today.
