The Owl & The Key, A Watery Version

I don't repeat images often but now and than an image wants to be done in a multitude of mediums...


You've seen the colouring page, you've seen the ink pen version...now here it is in watercolour.

Sunsets, Sanding, Sweet bunnies and Honey's

Days are full of time nestled on our back deck with bunnies and books...
 
 
with raspberry ice teas and bowls of berries (have you tired Golden Berries before? They are weird)

 
With one super duper cutie with who has constantly dirty green feet (which I love ha ha!)

 
with more brilliant scenic end of day clouds (from our kitchen window)...

 
and bunnies hiding and napping in the green, hoping we won't find them to bring them in...

 
and with piles of wood nabbed from my hon's garage...
 
 
is it weird that freshly sanded blocks of wood for future coloured pencils makes me happy!

Weaving and Sky Enticing

I've been bringing my weaving outside...
 
 
Teela naps and snores away nearby as I play and I love it so much.

 
These days full of snoring rabbits, flowers galore, beautiful wools and warm summer days are lovely.

 
The baby squirrels are becoming hardier and fuller and smarter about where we store the peanuts!

 
The skies have been so very enticing...

 
I still can't get into my kayak but I am enjoying summer from the yard just as well.

Grass Box Green

So in the Spring we had to pull out two dead trees which left a whole big area
that needed something so we decided on two tiered planters
one level for us with decorative grass and one level with normal edible grass for the babies.

 
We did the designing, he did the building, I did the painting, he did the filling, I did the planting.
 
 
We were able to fill them all up using our own compost which was satisfying.

 
We made bets on which bunny would be the first to explore them...I was right...it was Teela.
 
 
Than we planted our grasses and waited and waited and waited for things to grow.

 
And they did, beautifully and easily and quickly.
(my honey even pried all the boardwalk boards off to put them closer together for little bunny feet)
now it's one of the first pit stops when all of the buns get outside and
we love how it compliments the concrete water fountain that we made together ages ago.
Yayyyyy.

Up and Up

I am outside with sweet baby squirrels
 
 
and amazing cloudscapes (is that a word?)

 
and watercolours

 
and wind blown bunnies

 
uncomfortable body yes...but things are looking up and up.

We're Gonna Be Featured WOHOOOO

I am beyond excited, holy smokes.
I found out just a few days ago that my beloved blog, my artwork and the bunnies
will be featured in the November issue of Artful Blogging.
 
 
I am just in the throws of getting my article together,
finding and prepping all the photos and artwork that they requested.
I really really needed something extra amazing to happen and this fits the bill.  WOHOO!
