L'Aubergine De Nancy~And 2 years ago~
I planted at least 60 Mammoth Sunflowers from seed and reaped 6 tall small ones.. where are the 54 mammoth ones?:(Where is my field of Provence in my borrowed landscape?
My friend grew eggplants and already got 3..one for us~
I also grew pattypan squash.. heirloom ones..from seed you may remember..let's just say I have not set up a roadside stand yet:)~
Trying to watercolor Nancy's Aubergine..brought back a flood of memories of quick watercolors in the journal I kept while in Europe 2 years ago~♥
Not watercolor paper..but how happy I am to still have that journal..with peeled off wine labels..train passes..resto bills..napkins..paper napkin rings..
We were supposed to return this year..to the land of enchantment,it was not to be..
But my friend Nancy brightened my spirits today and we went foraging for art supplies for trips to come..~Or armchair painting too~
She is an artist par excellence..Like Ronelle @My French Kitchen..and Susan @ Savoring Time In The Kitchen~
It was nice to spend time in an art store with a true artist..like my mom was..
Qui sais? Maybe one day I will return to France~♥God willing.
My friend lived in the South of France and Paris also..I love the stories she tells me~
