Love your photos! This week the Sweet woodruff is stealing the show in my shady yard in Michigan.

thanks! That's a great plant. Some people worry about it getting out of hand but I want mine to take over more than it does

I saw your photo of the hands planting lettuce in the March Martha Stewart Living magazine. I chose it as an inspiration for an oil painting to do in my senior citizen art class.
The contrasts of color were too much for me to resist although everyone in the class thought I was crazy to attempt to paint such a picture.
I'm an amateur artist but love working in oil. I'd like to send you a picture of my painting when I'm done in a few weeks.
Would you like that and, if so, where can I send it.
ps. I absolutely love plants of all kind. My favorite is a yellow calla lily. I mulch mine and they winter over here in Nebraska.

Thank you Lori! I'm glad you liked that MSL article but that wasn't my photo. I just wrote the piece. I would like to see your painting though. You can send it me at steporr (at) gmail.com. And good luck with your callas this summer

It says Thomas Straub took the picture but when I checked with MSL they said you did.
I'm not quite finished with the painting but will send a picture to you when I am. I'll also share my callas with you later this summer.
I'm on to find my photographer.
love your new page....Lori

Sorry, I don't know how Anonymous got on there. I'm new at this stuff. Lori
