Yesterday was a loooooooong day that stretched into the night, and I still didn’t get everything done that I had hoped. So my post about The Very Nearly Perfect Thing will be a little delayed. I think I’ll make a video to explain it and hope to put it up late today or tomorrow.
First, sad news: Tasha Tudor has died. I have long admired her work and really appreciate how she chose to live her extraordinary life. The linked article refers to her need to make money from her art to support her children after a divorce. She said “the wolf at the door is very good for people” because she felt she would not have developed her talents without the need to pay bills. That is a very healthy perspective.
Thank you very much to everyone who turned out for last night’s Readergirlz chat! Mitali Perkins will be posting excerpts on her blog very soon. I’ll link to it as soon as it’s up.
We had a little rain yesterday and were given a beautiful gift at the end.
Especially because the rainbow ended (or began?) in our garden. (Photo credit: BH aka Scot Larrabee)

: ) Beautiful.
Wow, look at how the field is GLOWING, and in the second photo, how the rainbow is coming out of the bucket! Amazing!
i love the last photo and how it looks like it ends in your garden!!!!
it looked like it ended at the end of my street!
sorry i posted the wrong photo and it wouldn`t let me delete it to fix it :/
I hoped you checked the bucket for treasure 🙂
Thanks for sharing the links for Tasha Tudor. My mother and her friends really like “old things” and I grew up with her art. My husband bought me one of her recent books and I just love it! It is such a loss, but she lived such an extraordinary life, as you said. Also, my name is Natasha so that brings a little connection to her as well.
Gorgeous. I love rainbows. 🙂
You have a pot, or bucket rather, of gold at the end of your rainbow! Did you scurry through your garden looking for leprechauns?
Thank you for a lovely chat, and for sharing your stories about prom and Prom.
Rainbows are so beautiful!
i love those pictures of the rainbow! it’s so beautiful! that’s one thing i’m always grateful to be able to see every time a rainstorm ends. can’t wait to hear all about the readergirlz chat! =) ♥
If I didn’t know better I would say the photos were taken in Ireland with its lush rolling green hills and stone walls. Sure you don’t live in Mexublin? This is a photo to be kept in the family album for sure. It should be shown to future generations (God willing) as the day Grandma Laurie and Grandpa Scott caught a leprechaun and his pot of gold in the garden.
Thank you for opening my eyes to the wonderful woman Tasha Tudor and her way of life. I am ashamed to say that I had never heard of her until today but I do believe that I have seen her books. Her illustrations remind me of those from the Little Golden Books I read as a child. They were soft, sweet and gentle as are hers.
