I've practically been living in the studio for the last month, and suddenly this past week someone has put some diversions in my life, which is a good thing. As I was watering the container on the front porch last week I noticed a small lavender bloom on my sweet potato vine. I plant sweet potato vines annually, and this is the first year I have had blooms. For whatever reason this little vine is giving me bloom, after bloom, after bloom and each morning it makes me smile and take a moment to go "aawwhhhhh".
Sorry for the water on the porch behind the planter, but I had just watered the planter to thank it for it's lovely gift.
The other recent diversion has been a small kitten appearing in our yard that has such a flight instinct I worry about being able to capture her to get her to a vet. She seems to like Jake (one of the monkey cats) and he will sit with her at the door while she tries to take a nap. A neighbor and I have been trying to get her for over a week so I now have an outdoor litter box for her, a pad on a floral table to sleep on and fresh food and water to keep her nearby. Keep your fingers crossed for me she will eventually accept my actions as non-threatening.
Diversions can be good. Back to work for me!
