It has been a great year for strawberries and we have been busy picking and cleaning and freezing. Oliver Farms had a great crop and thy will be having other products coming throughout the season. Another local place, here is Smithfield, to get produce as well as bedding plants is Browder’s Farm. It is so important to support local farms as well as other independent businesses. So go to a Farmer’s Market this week and check out all the lovely selections, this is best time of year to get in the habit of eating well.
I have a silk painting workshop coming up in Smithfield at the Art Center@319, contact them to register. This is a day long class at the new location of Isle of Wight Arts League we will learn and practice several techniques and complete several samples and a finished silk scarf. The class size is limited due to space, so sign up early to try out this beautiful art form. It has been a couple of years since I offered this class, so I look forward to working with everyone.
People have been “dyeing” all day.
Hand painting silk scarves to be shipped out.
The color Purple… blue and red… no, purple. Purple eats people, um no… “coughBarneyscough” no… Eggplants, just larger versions of grapes!… yeah… no. I just twitched and smacked my leg on my desk… no? All the flowers are dying… some purple some not… Amethyst… my shirt… Haze… many others…
The Grass is green, green eggs and ham. Green Lantern… goes green because green is the new black? Green symbolizes self-respect and well being. Emerald green… they cost a lot of… “green” on St. Patrick’s Day…Green Day? Mold, lizards, moss, leaves… turn orange, red, and brown?
