Around the corner from the new shelf in my studio is this water color of an angel. I have her just inside the back door which goes out into the garden. It is still early morning but reflections glimmer on the glass surface on top of the painting.
Outside, an ornamental glass bauble "dragonfly" in the garden flits over the basil and French marigolds.
A "black" ornamental pepper plant hides the garden "caulifower" teapot. One round red "pepper" shows the effect of all the recent rain. It is splitting. [Click on the photo for a closer view.] Our weather has been glorious for the last few days, sunny and cool. The garden is still producing cucumbers and ripe tomatoes.
