Went to the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge on Sunday.
Beautiful weather right on the  northwest Gulf of Florida. 
A few memories from that visit. Thousands of acres dedicated to the preservation of our treasures here.

Autumn in Florida

We do have a slight change of seasons here in the northern part of Florida. 
A maple leaf picked this morning, and painted in watercolor.

Making a Home

I've always liked decorating, and if I had been wiser I would have chosen a career in that field. 
Well, I do it for myself a lot now.. and I found this little oval table in a thrift shop.. It was ugly, dark wood and I put my touch to it .. I love text on anything,. Paper, fabric, everywhere. 
So after painting the table I did just that.  Oh, I really like French text, and found this stencil.
I really like whites, creams, naturals.  Soon as I take a photo I'll put my new rods and curtains that I hung this a.m.

Took the Plunge

You all know I'm living in Havana, Fl. now. It's a few minutes north of the capital, Tallahassee. 
   Tonight I finally took a deep breath and attended an art show. I didn't have anything in it . It was all I could do to get myself there. 
But I did and have now met other artists in the area, something we all need to do .. Connect with like minded people. 
This Sunday I'll be going to the Tallahassee Watercolor Society meeting. I'm looking forward to that, and to meeting new people. 
There is a wonderful community center here that has classes in everything from French and Tai Chi,  to drawing and sculpture.  I'm looking forward to that too. 

            Spanish moss at Lake Ella.  
 These photos are taken at Lake Ella, a serene and beautiful place to go and sketch. 
  I think ya'll know what Spanish moss looks like.
Some visitors to Florida take it and bring it to their yards back home, but you don't want to do that. It has tiny critters in it.

Just back from a few days visit with my dearest friend.  It was a nice getaway, relaxed and enjoyed it very much..
It's a 4 hour drive away, and as always my 4 hour drives take 6 hours... I can't figure that one out. !!  
Any way I'm home now.. and going to put my efforts into painting.. visiting festivals, (if not too hot) .
 After my heat stroke episode a year ago, I find it very hard to be in the sun at all... Me !! who use to be Goddess of the Sun... and I don't think I'll soon forget the skin cancer problem  just a few months ago.. so yes, I'm careful. 
The Fuschias painted above are from a photo of a dear friend in England who grows lots and lots of them..

Prayers and Thoughts

What has happened in Orlando is nothing new, just more of what's been going on for quite a while now.. Especially since 911, something I will NEVER forget. 
 I just pray for the families, and hope to God they can deal with it..
