Happy Easter to all! Spend a Day in My Garden with Me!

Wishes for a bright Easter to all of you who celebrate the day. The sun is trying to get out here– and we now that the kids are beyond the egg hunt age, we’ll be doing yard work instead. In honor of Spring, some shots from my garden: Wisteria in Bloom! Official Horticultural Name: Bright […]

Connie Rohman at the Fremont Gallery

There are fifteen women showing from all over the world at the Fremont Gallery’s upcoming exhibition, “Fifteen Graces,” but we’re partial to the work of Mount Washington’s own Connie Rohman, a fiber artist who uses traditional methods and materials (hand-dyed fabrics, quilts, etc) to explore abstract shape, line, and color. She’s very talented. The exhibition […]
