I Can't Sleep Chat Post

Hello Owls,

Just typed a post for owls with a long text and all disappeared into the ether.!

Second time lucky.

Heavy thunderstorms here yesterday, poor Daisy hid under the table, bless her.

Hot chocolate tonight with orange creams, plenty for owls and larks.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Blackbird's Avatar What a vibrant painting tonight- the height of summerVery Happy

It's been busy here and I've peaked before making it to the perch- just as well as I would not have made much sense. Which makes me wonder what's different tonight? hmmm....

I've become a mobile gardener- taking care of 2 additional gardens and with no rain for over a month- lots of watering just to keep things alive. My daughter will be back Wednesday from Maine where, surprisingly, it's been raining. The other yard belongs to a dear friend- off in Sicily and Portugal with her family where it no doubt is hotter and dryer. Her garden is lovely with interesting textures and colors- all carefully layered- a joy to water. My daughter's is full of zucchinis as she couldn't decide on which type to buy and so bought 7 different plants. Shocked She'll have zucchini with the lobsters she's bringing home.

Give Daisy a hug from Jack, another noise sufferer and have a great time with your family later today.

I had a comment to FN disappear last week- it doesn't happen often but when it does...

Sweet dreams, owls and larks.

Fennie's Avatar I do like those orange creams, Camilla, but there are only certain times of day I could exist with that painting. Very Happy

Admit the pic is a tad bright Fennie.Very Happy so what is on your walls Fennie and FN? portraits, scenery, ships, animals.

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Our walls are mostly a collection of gentle watercolours by a great friend and artist (sadly no longer with us) most are landscapes or flowers along with a painting of my old Victorian garden which was a 21st birthday commission.

We also have a beautiful pencil life study and an oil seascape by another great friend and artist (also no longer with us).

A couple of felt wall hangings one by me (bees on mallow) and one by the friend who taught me to felt (abstract with real shells felted into it) and some of our own favourite photographs (dolphins landscapes and flowers) pretty much finish the list except for one of our very own Headmistresses lovely raindrops on grass photographs Very Happy

Camilla's Avatar Sounds wonderful FN all your lovely art works you have in your home. Can't imagine ever having a blank wall, or even a shelf with no books come to that.Very Happy
