I recently returned from a week in San Diego visiting family there. It was a delightful week, especially being able to spend time with my first great-grandchild, John.
When I make trips to San Diego, my daughter usually has a few father-daughter chores lined up for me. This visit was no exception. The two of us cleaned up a non-working water feature and replaced it with a new fountain. We cleared garden beds and filled numerous pots with succulents.
The big chore was rebuilding and replanting two hanging “pictures” of succulents. I had first constructed them about ten years ago, and time dictated they should be redone. She repainted the frames, and I rebuilt the planting area and backing. Using new material clipped from my daughter’s garden I “painted” these two scenes to hang on her garden fence.
My art teacher daughter was pleased with my efforts…and so am I.
