Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Thomas Merton

I thought it was time to do a little more enlarging and cropping art for you. Here is a section of one of the flower photos already posted. These are fennel seed pods and part of a petunia stem and flower bud.
The one below is more fennel with zinnias and leaves.
A closeup of zinnia leaves, white zinnia petals in the background, yellow and red zinnias in the foreground with a bit of petunia leaves peeping out.
A couple of zinnia closeups for your enjoyment. Sorry the deep pink one is a little blurred.
Hope you've enjoyed looking at them. The colors remind me of the Tropical Bird roving that I was spinning a few weeks ago.
I enjoy art and like to look for it in the natural world. My craft interests include handspinning and most of the fiber arts, especially knitting, weaving, and working with paper. Other important things are my family and friends, my pets, nature, literature, poetry, music, history, birding, star gazing, museums...and the list goes on. In other times and places, I've been an archaeologist, taught anthropology, and worked in a living history museum, so I find all sorts of things to hold my interest and keep me entertained. I hope to share some of these things with you.
