Went on a neat little walk tonight through a sort of nature park. Plants were labeled, so that was fun. Went off the beaten path only to be stopped by a small canal. Crossed a rickety little bridge.

My son and I went for a bike ride this morning before it got hot. Here we are together. We rode down to the Albertson park. I took pictures of several cool trees while we were there, trees that needed my attention. I also discovered they have lotuses there. I saw some when I went … Continue reading Lotus in Idaho

Our world burns while humanity fights against itself. Are we idiots or what?
After my post earlier this week about the seasons changing way too soon, I thought I'd lighten it up a bit by bringing in some spring. The seasons do not rule my painting! I've had many people admire my purple trees. I don't know why I like to paint them; they are just fun. So, … Continue reading Purple trees
I noticed the leaves on the trees starting to change color in the middle of August. Some people told me I was crazy, even as I was pointing to the yellow leaves on the trees.
