The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

High and dry art

As I mentioned in Sunday's post, I'll be selling my original watercolors at half price this week in hopes of finding every painting a good home (and of clearing up that space behind my desk).  Today's theme is High and Dry since oaks live on ridgetops in our region, and since the Virgin's Bower pictured has clearly climbed to higher ground.  If you buy one or more of the paintings below, they'll go in the mail early next week and will probably take roughly another week to arrive.

This cluster of Virgin's Bower seeds is about to break apart.  The seeds will waft away from the parent plant and drift to a new home in the mountains.
