Cereal and camera in hand this morning, I sat on the veranda watching the birds. The west wind was cool, and it wasn’t long before I was donning a sweater. Not long after, the sun broke through the clouds and the temperature and humidity soared!

I like writing about my day as it’s nice to reflect but also a great way to remember. But for the life of me I can’t remember what I did today! It’s all a blur. I remember sleeping in – I was up late…having breakfast on the veranda… oh yes, now I remember. I did a lot of small things like fill up the bird feeders, washed the cats litter boxes and old containers for sugar water for the bees and butterflies and Baltimore orioles. In the afternoon I made a couple of meals for this week…and the day is gone!

I did spend a lot of time taking pictures too!

Tonight’s painting was going to be pansies but the water enveloped the paint and something else emerged. Reminded me of a forget-me-not. I couldn’t quite remember how to paint a forget-me-not, decided to just play a little and then I recognized the flower…a lilac! So I kept with it until it was finished.
