So much depends upon A red wheel barrow Glazed with rain water Beside the white chickens. -William Carlos Williams As the weather warms not so gently here in Austin, wheelbarrows are, indeed, important articles for moving piles of compost and leaf mulch to prepare new garden beds. Time to get planting! Painting and growing are so connected in Arnica's work. Each is a labor of love. Each hopes to produce a beautiful final product. In both cases, the result is far from certain, and takes hard work and dedication to the effort. Time for a last little vacation before the real work of springtime comes on, Arnica Grace will soon leave on a journey of fun and hopefully some self-discovery. Maybe a caribbean cruise will shake the dust off the ol' girl. Cheers!
