We just visited my inlaws in Fort Wayne, Indiana last week. It was a really nice break and coincided with Castle Gallery's anniversary celebration. Early in the week, we enjoyed an all-American Independence Day with a baseball game and fireworks show. Hiked along the mosquito coast (nearby river and woods) with enough of the buggers to drain us all before we got back. And we picked - and ate - and ate - and ate blueberries.
I came home to my much missed furchild and a seriously overgrown garden. I have an African sunflower (tithonia) that is now 7 feet tall I swear! Cucumber vines are dried but I got the last of the cucs off.
Castle Gallery was hung almost Salon style with so much beautiful art it was hard to take it all in, especially with the crowds in attendance! Many of the artists were there as well. It was a good party and I want to congratulate Mark and Jody Hemphill Smith again on their amazing careers and success with the gallery. Its really a special place for art and I am so happy to have been a part of their family of artists for the last 8 years.
