Planting Seeds

By Diane of Lady Dye Fiber Arts & Design

Are you enjoying your summer! We are all out there spending time with family, going on vacation, catching up on our reading book club, and of course working. I have had a very busy summer thus far with my work that pays the bill and the work that feeds my passion. In the mist of it all, I have had a couple of minutes this week to take a step back from the four-letter word and focus on something new that I have now successfully done and that is gardening.

Yes ladies and gentleman, the work now that makes me get down and dirty in the ground allows me to plant my seeds and grow. I enjoy watching my basil, cherry tomatoes, and chard blossom each week and look forward to my radishes to come up.

With that being said, I encourage everyone to take a step back from what you are doing this summer and find something new to do. As artist, we are in our studios working on our craft to get ready for the holidays or we are busy each week getting ready for a show. Just be cognizant that there’s always something new out there to learn from. Enjoy your summer!

The basil is growing fast!
