When remembering all the chores my mother did on a daily basis when I was a child, gardening always ranks high on the list. Although dad would work the soil and plant the seeds, mom always found her way to the garden daily to weed and hoe the new shoots. Being in Arizona, it is easy to imagine working in the garden on a hot summer day. Something wonderful to look forward to as the warm weather approaches at home. “Gardening” is 6” x 12”.

Long Summer Evening

Soon the days will be getting longer and we will be able to enjoy being outside on a warm summer evening. Farmers will take advantage of the extra hours of sunlight in order to get ahead with their chores. I am currently on vacation in Arizona where it is much warmer than home, but the evenings are still short here. I look forward to summer in the valley. “Long Summer Evening” is 7” x 9”.
