Funny Farm!

This year our family reunion, held annually on Easter weekend was down at the Farm. Which was a little confusing considering no one in the family has a farm. To make matters worse, Google disclosed 'the Farm' was located @ 914 Shady Lane, Austin Texas, 3 miles east of downtown. ...mmmmm? However, I am pleased to report that upon arrival we did find fresh flowers, crockery, chickens, vegetable garden, barbeque, watermelon, lot's of dogs, country music, wild critters,and a lot of friendly faces.

However there were a few differences. Like this big sign. Which invites the public to pick there wn vegetables.Sprouting plants! Growing crops! I mean flowers...and vegetables!

But please don't smoke near the tomatoes. Apparently it's not good for them...something about a virus. Sounds like the tomatoes are trying to send a 'public service annoucement'! That's them all wrapped up behind the live scarecrow! Frankly,I think they're a little embarrassed.
Coming up next! Crop painting....not to be confused with crop dusting. I'm currently painting # 2 in a series of cotton fields. I'm discovering the powerful beauty of simplicity. I'm not sure how many I will paint but the best 4 will hang in our home. Maybe you will help me decide?

Looks like a load of Fun! I adore your new blog header. I also have to say you have done a wonderful job with the concept of de-cluttering. All the pictures you took of your house were beautiful and I want to come visit.

It has been quite sometime since you have posted something crazy.... maybe too long. Are you simmerin' down, becoming... well... normal? I sure hope not. See you in two days, and I'm riding my vespa and bringing griffin (on the vespa.. in a bird cage).
