Trout Lily

I was surprised to find this Trout Lily yesterday. Spring is just starting to bloom here and I'm used to seeing the Trillium and Blood Root about this time of year but I'd never seen one of these before.

I found a new place to open a shop. No fees if you use the basic account. Im not sure it will come to much and Ive only added one thing for now but we'll see. Nothing ventured...nothing gained!

I used to be totally consummed with working on gourds. Woodburning was such a passion. It's been ages and looking at that peice I wonder why I quit.

A real quartz crystal is inbedded in the shell of the gourd

Jules. The youngest 70ish man I've ever met. Full of the devil and he cheats at cards. Though according to him its not cheating if he doesn't tell you all the rules of the game until after you're ahead on points. When you accuse of being full of something that starts with the same letter as Something he says "Sly?"

This is a portraint I did of him recently. He maintains he's slightly more handsome.

Just Ducky

These things really do seem to have a mind of their own. What my head at be a griffin took a definate turn towards ducky.

Hmmm...Ducky...yeah..that'll work.

Which makes me think about the platypus. A mammal who lays eggs and looks as strange as its name conveys. I'm convinced that the existence of the platypus proves Diety or some sort. In my heathen heart Goddess has a sense of humor. She likes to play. Maybe even her stuff doesnt turn out every time as she planned but she said "Well. I think I'll leave it as it wants to be."
Or maybe she planned it just exactly that way so some of us would notice she likes to play.
