Some of my plants are still showing some blooms although they suffered through one of the hottest summers we’ve had here in the valley, and they also had to deal with our polluted air filled with smoke from all the California wild fires.
I’m loving the pink and blue.
Some of my roses continue to bloom and continue to receive visitors.
Right now we are enjoying some beautiful autumn weather which will make it possible for me to get out there and do some cleaning in my rustic garden.
No, not like the movie, but a fun trip with two daughters, a granddaughter and myself.
We laughed at silly things that probably no one else would laugh at. We teased each other without getting mad, and we shared one bathroom without yelling at one another.
Every girl needs a trip like this.
We visited Mission Santa Barbara, which was beautiful and full of California history.
The beaches were lovely. We watched the sunset at Ventura Beach.
In downtown Santa Barbara we tasted a new food, Goa tacos, which were different from what we are familiar with, but were very tasty.
On one afternoon we managed to beat everyone else to the spa at our hotel.
And because we had such a successful trip, we celebrated by treating ourselves to some yummy ice cream treats.
If you’re ever in Bakersfield, California, you’ll need to visit Rosemary’s Ice Cream Shop in the downtown area.
Next year, same time, different place.💗💜💗💜
Well, I’m all finished with Frida, so this morning I took her and entered my wall hanging into the fair exhibits.
I had so much fun trying to capture the essence of Frida, maybe not her looks, but her colorful way of life.
She will be viewed by hundreds of people, some will like her and some will not, but that’s ok, because I am pleased with the outcome.
I think I influenced my daughter and grandson to enter their projects as well.
My daughter had made the Mad Hatter’s hat into a donation box for the school play and decided to enter that. It’s a fun and unique project.
Our grandson loves to draw and he is quite good. Since boys love drawing robot type figures, that’s what his project was.
We hope our family members and friends will support us and visit the exhibits to view our projects.❤️💜❤️💜
