this morning there is a mist sifting up off the lake. the air is thick and muffled. sounds are softer like during a snowstorm.
the flowers are magnificent. the tulips have been beautiful for more than 3 weeks. the lilacs are full and dripping around the edges of the garden. and i see the peonies are preparing to burst on the scene in a couple of weeks. may is a color-infused month. the leaves on the trees are the new young bright green. and the leaves aren't as full so the light isn't as filtered. so everything seems that much brighter.
we are hoping to bring the brightness of the lilacs to the studio tomorrow evening. on thursday may 17th (tomorrow), we are opening the studio from 3 - 9 pm. there is new art to see. and our guest is agnes koller of fig design, with her divine pictures. so have a little evening outing, sip lemonade and stroll through the little white house finding treasures. 55 mowat avenue in portsmouth village.
