My Trip to VA

I went back home for a month!
Visited family, enjoyed my friends! and met an on-line friend in person!
Angela lives in the DC area operates a plant nursery and took time to come visit and help me at Mom's...she is taking a break fishing off the dock at Mom's..she is the energizer bunny...and her battery never gets low! She planted mom a garden with plants she brought with her, cleaned out the old beds and ran me around town.

Here is a sample of her gorgeous plants!

she found this plant stand in the trees and it makes the perfect showpiece on moms deck she can see it from her regular chair place...and just loves that.

This is my childhood home! I flourished sketching and fishing and just sitting on the beach!

Anne Gaal and her husband Brian drove up from NC just_to_meet_ME!
How special is that!
Two of the nicest people!!
Both are artist so we never stopped talking..then went to supper at an Italian place in Ocean was delicious we had a FABULOUS evening!!

I talk a lot about Colleen and Angie HerE they ArE!!!

Colleen and I went to Art and Soul Hampton and took 2 classes...I will talk more about them in the next post.. The box arrived today with my class samples

I need to take pictures.

We all had a glorious time helping mom and visiting her...oops I didn't add moms picture
so I will in the next post...sorry!
Thanks for dropping by and more thanks for those who have emailed me wondering where I am...and asking about my health...Y'all are so thoughtful!
More later...

Sounds like you had a wonderful time.

One of my best friends lives in Ocean View. Is that where you grew up??

Hi, Mary! Love the photo of Ang with the fishing pole! Brian and I had such a great time visiting you and meeting you in person! We loved seeing your artwork in progress and ate WAY too much Italian food! :-)

What wonderful memories. Glad to read why you were absent so long in blogland. Also glad the tornado did no damage. Love your childhood home. Very inspiring for an artist. Will look forward to your next post to see more of your trip.

Going home again, how wonderful. It sounds like you got renewed. Vacations charge our batteries. I can't wait to see what you dive into in the studio. :)Bea
