I forgot that I put it in the safe place I use when I have been taking pictures outside and am not going upstairs right away. It's an old terrarium I use to keep the cats away from precious things.
I have been working on the bottom of Tyrian Turtle. I generally use some sort of mandala on the bottoms of my turtles. The rounded shape seems to call for it. The bottom is not generally seen, but an interesting design is a nice surprise when it's upended. Next I will wax the design so I can put in the background color without smearing or otherwise messing it up.
I don't know if this could be called a true mandala as it has five points instead of the eight I usually see. It's very Atevi. Those of you who read CJ Cherryh will get it.
We have had over two inches of much needed rain. Everything is blooming, including the poppies! This year I am also planting California poppies. Toes crossed that they will reseed themselves from year to year.
I bought the dahlia and will buy more as I didn't get them up in time to avoid frost and winter! I like having some in bloom because the toes I plant will not bloom until August!
It's sunny but below seasonal warmth. I will be able to work in the garden this afternoon. It should be warmer by them!
Enjoy the week end, and, as always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*
