My husband brought me sunflowers, the cheeriest flower there is, when I was feeling very low. I split the bouquet up into small bunches and scattered them around our apartment, for a bit of sunshine in every room. And when I got some good news at work, he gifted me this beautiful edition of The Round House by Louise Erdrich which I had pointed out weeks earlier as a book I’d like to read. So all of this is to say that today and always I am thankful for my wonderfully thoughtful partner (and books, and sunny yellow flowers, and our cozy apartment filled with both).🌻
What are you thankful for? 💛
Louise Erdrich is a writer of novels, poetry, and children's books featuring Native American characters and settings. She is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, a band of the Anishinaabe. 🌻
I’ve been returning to this lovely, windswept, history-soaked book to plan grand summer walks (most of which will be imaginary because of the whole writing and looking after a baby thing). Pictured with a bluebell from the clump that has moved in beside the back door
Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone in Canada had a wonderful long weekend 🌸

Dancing with my brush....a slow seasonal dance today, with nothing but black sumi ink....Sinking into these minimal seasonal botanical studies ....in flow. .
Just watching as the pigment is displaced in the water behaving in its own unique way... it might flow fast or slow, it might ripple, it might soak in & find safety on the sidelines, it might pool in one place. It's fascinating
The ink has a distinct smell (it is made from the soot of the pine tree)...it's an earthy organic smell & brings me right back to the plant's origins.
To the ground. X
Ho iniziato a lavorare con i fiori quasi per caso e non ho più smesso. Adesso continuo a pensare che la parte più bella e interessante di questo lavoro sia capire esattamente cosa vi serve, cosa vi piace, quali sono le vostre idee e come possono diventare una composizione o un progetto creativo. Far lavorare le mani e la fantasia per creare qualcosa che fa stare bene e che viene ricordato. Adoro immaginare 😍🌸🌼 #elenafiori
