Summer Art began with a burst of juicy colors today...we studied the paintings of Brazillian artist, Romero Britto...and the kids were off and painting...they had as much paint on their faces as their canvas boards but in the end it was well worth the mess...well done grasshoppers!

Dad compared vegetable garden notes with Lauren and Leah yesterday in his backyard...Lauren has built up quite a plot in her own yard this year...if I play my cards right I can sit back, encourage them all and reap the delicious benefits ...(it's a good thing).

Tony and Company decided to adopt this cute little gal, named Mesa. They fostered her for a couple of days but when it came time to give her up...well, you guessed it..they couldn't. So Mesa has happily joined in the fray...welcome little one.

A favorite lyric from a Patty Griffin song...I think it's time to hop on the museum bus road show again...summer is the time I like to get up in the Berkshires to visit Mass Moca and the Clark Museum...a visual feast for the eyes...and a photographer's dream!

A little sparrow's nest has suddenly showed up in my hanging petunia planter...it's covered by the shed roof and high enough to be hidden from the neighborhood cats...what a great spot to hatch...keeping an eye on it...imagine being born into a basket full of brilliant purple petunias...nice way to start a life.

We like to keep our friends off guard...so tonight we celebrated Linda's birthday in the V.I.P. room at Cugino's...sure it was a few weeks early, but that's what made it such a surprise! The owner gave us the star treatment all around...chocolate mouse "rocked" our world!

Lauren, Leah and I spent a long time trying to pick out all the flowers for our garden tonight...we "thunk" and then "rethunk" it until we finally had a plan...got home and finished planting just before the moon came out...well done grasshoppers...thanks for all your help!!
