i can't wait

I was so pleased to receive an invitation to be an artist participant in this year's rendition of "Artful Taste of Autumn" This is a wonderful event that comprises an evening of wine tasting, delicious tapas, and original art in many different mediums, all set in the beautiful rural gardens of Chris and John who graciously allow the use of their property and indeed work very hard to make this event the success it always is. One of my first blog posts talks about last year's event. If you're interested in seeing it, go here. Otherwise, here is a photo of one of the gardens in this lovely Tuscan-style venue.

OK, so I couldn't stop at one photo. But it is such a lovely setting and a wonderful, fun event. I'm thrilled to be included again this year.
Dylan is off to school this morning. I walked him into the building, not for his sake but for mine, so I could meet his teacher and see his classroom. He was absolutely rarin' to go. He is so not shy at all, which I hope will stand him in good stead later in life. Even as a kindergartener, everyone knew who he was because he'd make himself known. Extroverted, yessiree.
Hope you're all having a good Thursday.

How wonderful for you to be taking part again. I had to go back to the original post to see more of the beautiful garden.

I hope your son is enjoying school - did you get the photos of Chris you wanted? I think there is something to be said for the uniforms Aussie kids wear - sure beats arguments over what to wear to school!

Hi Susan - lovely, lovely garden. I'm looking forward to pics of the Event! What are you putting in?
Hope Thursday was okay. I always hated First day of school, but it is easier when they're happy to go. (My mum always wanted her kids to be sad - never forgave my sis for skipping off and having a good time!)xx
