A Trip to Omaha

We left early and knew it would take many hours of driving before we got there.  My husband, Barry, did most of the driving and I was left to fill my eyes with the countryside, the grass, the pink flowers in the median and the yellow blooms on both sides of us.

I had put my annual plants in the middle of the kitchen so they would stay moist for the three days of the show while we would be away. It really worked and I found them when I got back happily blooming for my enjoyment.

On the way back we stayed for awhile at a great rest stop where we could see all the landscape reflected in the pond with a steel sculpture resting above the water to catch the wind.


Our shadow was reflected on the grass while all around berries hung from the trees and stood against the sky.

The sky scape was quite exciting and I photographed it driving from the van.

Back here in Colorado, I went right back to work to fill the many orders and start my own creations.

The weather was gray and rainy and great for the garden but not so for many creeks that got flooded as were many intersections.

I made a few new necklaces that I love as you can see in these images. They were inspired by all the flowers I saw on the way to Omaha and they speak to my soul.
