Hello friends,

I am so happy it is June. The weather has been just gorgeous, with the sun being warm but not too hot, with enough of a breeze that I can keep the windows and patio door open and the house still staying cool. Last week I planted some Cosmos and some have already started to sprout, the other herbs and flowers are taking their time, but I am patient.

While enjoying the weather I have also been having some fun in the studio and I finished my peonies painting just in time because after I took my lunch break today, half of the petals fell off the front flowers. Phew!

When the weather is sunny and pleasant I always feel I am more productive. Does the weather affect you positively as well?

Have a wonderful afternoon, Liz
