African Violet

This is one of the 28 African Violets growing in my house. They are blooming like crazy right now and this one is one of my favorites. The blooms are bigger than the others but nonetheless, they are all different and beautiful. The 10 on my kitchen window sill make me smile while I'm cooking. They remind me of my grandmother who had them in her living room and from whom I received several that I still have today after so many years!

Fundraiser for d'Artists of d'Art Center in Norfolk, VA

Tomorrow, May 3, there's a fundraiser to raise money to support the artists at the D'Art Center that were affected by the explosion in the building which occurred two weeks ago. One completely lost her studio and others lost some walls, windows and artwork. It seems that it well be a few months before the center reopens. I think it will be a fun event with food, music and art! And sunshine and warm temps!
