Big Changes

My prize Sea Holly is stunning this year!Yes the day finally came when my husband and I were able to retire this spring! Lots of hard work getting there but suddenly it was upon us. Do what does one do in retirement? Besides making MORE BEADS I finally got the gardens looking like I wanted them! Well…. to a point of course. One never has things quite the way it should be but I have made short work of weeds and now can enjoy the view. Of course my husband has been ever helpful but I sure enjoy having time to do it myself at a leisurely pace. We are enjoying having ‘vacation’ every day so far. And of course I will have more time in the studio to create.

Happiness is Where you find it……..

Who knew that a couple of grapevine reindeer that light up would be my favorite thing of the season?? I always wanted these – the classy ones that look pretty in the daytime as well as at night. And now they are here in my front yard. Thanks to my husband for hooking up the electrical and attaching all the parts 🙂 reindeer

Wisconsin’s “Up North”

Our traveling has been somewhat limited this year but we did manage to go for a 3 day trip ‘up north’. Those of you in WI know just what that means J  We drove through some great little towns since we took the back roads. On the way up we stopped at the Horicon Marsh  to check out this guy!!  All made of rebar.Mammoth

We wound our way on to Wautoma to see this Ghost House!!  DSC02198

Our friends in Wausau have a lovely old farm with a barn that just lends itself beautifully to photography don’t you think?  DSC02234

Wausau’s Monk Gardens are a work in progress and offer a lovely series of meditational pathways along with some geocaching. DSC02247

 

On our way back home we visited the StevensPoint Sculpturepark  .  How nice to be able to enjoy nature and art while you walk!  One of my favorites was this Swift Nesting Chimney. DSC02274

New Haiku – just for fun

Outside watching fireflies after a busy day…… I thought of this one (even though fireflies are quiet…)

standing, listening
Riot of animal sounds
even in the dark
