And at the end of the day …

IMG_0004-XLMost of the snow is now gone bringing us back to where we were about a little over a week ago.  It feels good to look out to the west and see the sun setting.  Maybe it doesn’t mean much to others and maybe others take it for granted, but I enjoy seeing it.  There have been so many grey days over the course of the past few months and tonight the setting sun is good for the soul.

This is how we prefer our water now.

IMG_0015-XLMelted and not frozen.  That’s more like it.  Plus, it shows that we’re putting time and distance between that white stuff and all of that cold weather.  We like that even more. It’s time to put the heated bird bath away and go with the cement one instead.

So back to the garden and finishing up on the new strawberry bed.  That wet snow we received helped to settle the dirt in the new beds.  Give it another 2 weeks and I’ll be ready to plant flowers in the one and I think I can get ready to uncover the strawberry in another week or so.  So I have another week or two to finish the cage for the new strawberry bed so I can transplant when all is ready.  That will keep that pesky squirrel that I have around my place from getting in there and eating all before I can pick them.

Art Sunday #19: Salvador Dali – The Persistence of Memory


The Persistence of Memory is a 1931 painting by artist Salvador Dali, and is one of his most recognizable works.  First shown at the Julien Levy Gallery in 1932, the painting has been in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York City since 1934 which received it from an anonymous donor. It is widely recognized and frequently referenced in popular culture, though it is commonly better known by the more descriptive (though incorrect) titles, ‘The Soft Watches’ or ‘The Melting Watches’.
