Most saturdays there are classes at my fav nursery. Last week I purchased some succulents and was wishing I knew more about growing them. I had the feeling I tend to overwater.... I was right. This class was just what I needed. This evening I will be planting andvrepotting some old overgrown ones I have neglected.

Power is off today so activites are limited. No cooking. No laundry. No radio or computer. No tv. So here I sit listening to an old cassette tape of Maya Angelou life story in her own voice - with a paint brush in my hand. Think I will mop some floors next. Lol
Tomorrow at this time I will be traveling with a group of seniors enroute to Yosemite Valley. Probably one of the most picturesque places on the planet. Years ago when I camped there with my sons I would slip off to take the free painting classes while they were hiking. I dont remember the names of the watercolor artists I received instruction from as our exposure was brief. In those days I could sit on a rock or stump. Lol. Now I need a chair or cushion.
I dont expect to sketch on this trip. There wont be time. But I will have my camera so plan on taking pics. will share more later.

A favorite nursery dating way back in time is up and running again. At least once a month they host an event. Specialy coffees. Fresh produce. Gardening worksops. Book signings. Yesterday the had live music and plein air painters. Jean and I went together. Several of the painters wete students of hers in the past. It was lovely. I bought 4 new succulents that Im unfamiliar with. When I got home I ordered a couple books on growing succulents so I can increase my collection. Might even get to know their names. I love to propogate pkants to share with friends.
