Scratch That Itch


I have a travel bug.

I know I just got back from a family trip, but I'm painting tropical palm trees and missing an artist's retreat in the fall colors of the White Mountains, AZ. Some of this may be due to my new high def flat screen TV. I've modified the color settings so that it's saturated. CSI Miami is WOW! But I look outside and my yard is worn out from the hot dry summer. I don't want to be here. I'm itchy.

I have a plane ticket to Denver on hold. For under $200 it would be great to take my camera to the mountains! But I've read the fall color report, and it seems that recent snows has ruined the unsually spectacular aspen show.

Inspiration of the day: COLOR

Funny about your garden. I just read an article about this being "scissors time." It said to just cut everything back -- blooms and all. In a couple of weeks you'll have fresh new growth and your neighbors will still have dried beds. I've cut back a bunch of stuff and planted two flats of new annual. I'll let you know. AND, yeah, I know about that travel itch.
