My New Teacher, Ms. Potter

Drawing has always been something of a challenge for me. It occurred to me that if I didn't practice I wouldn't get any better. So tonight I pulled out some inspiration in the form of Mrs. Rabbit. Beatrix Potter's illustrations have captivated my imagination my whole life. The eye of a naturalist with the wit to dress rabbits, mice and frogs in waistcoats and dresses. 
I can't think of a better teacher (that I don't have to leave the house to meet) 

the last {this moment}

Amanda created {this moment} five years ago, and she's decided that it's time to move on.
So, I'll join her one last time.

{this moment}

{this moment} ~ A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.
Joining Amanda this morning

Purple Abounding

Yesterday I couldn't help but notice all of the thrilling color popping out in my yard. 
This week it's all purple, soon we may see other colors, but for now purple is the color of spring. (Those tulips are really much deeper purple than they appear...)
