Spring has finally decided to arrive in Cheyenne... a welcome respite from the snows of winter... (Well, sort of... I do actually prefer the cooler weather -- it makes working in the shop a LOT more comfortable).
It's been raining like crazy all week, but today, finally, the sun has arrived, complete with golden rays, beams, and all manner of pouring down gorgeous golden light! I missed the sun. Wyoming has two things in abundance: grass and sky. And the sky is literally cloudless 90% of the time... the other 9% has tiny bitty clouds. Only 1% gets reserved for the overcast rainy days that dampen the ground and the spirits. (Thus, a week without sun is merciless punishment for sun-loving artists!!!)
Our irises appreciate both the rain and the sunshine: they're finally in bloom, and their lovely purple faces greet us as we walk outside:
Yes, a LOT of us are late-bloomers, but who cares? There's plenty of time in life to live :-)
Back to creation! K
P.S. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention: as the Vice President of the Rocky Mountain Woodturners, I'd like to invite you to our monthly meeting held today at WoodCraft in Loveland, 6:30 sharp. Dennis Liggett will be presenting twistwork. (Which is a REALLY neat technique!) Join us!
