THE WALL

Art washes from the soul the dust of every day life.” Picasso

The Daily post weekly challenge – wall – couldn’t resist this one – I adore wall art. When an artist can take a dull and ugly building and turn it into a piece of art, I gaze upon it in complete awe. I took this shot while driving along the Oregon Coast – this beautiful piece was painted on an old fish cannery. The stench from that building was nauseating, yet this mural caught the beauty of the coastal town.

DROWNING PEONIES – FRIDAY’S PHLOG FOR JUNE 8, 2012

Budded at least a week ago and I was looking forward to beautiful peonies.  Finally peonies bloomed this week and it’s been raining cats and dogs.  After work today I ran out and cut all the flowers off the peony bush and saved them from a frightful fate!

 The bee emerging from deep within the peony departs reluctantly
