My husband made this stand for my post cards out of
old barn board. The post cards I printed are of local
views and wildlife in our valley. They are available at 
the Canal Flats Family Pantry for $1.50 each.

P.S. - The Headwaters Art Society is exhibiting at Pynelogs, in Invermere next week. I will have three new pieces for display as well as 5 of my 4" x 4" tiles. Join me on Wednesday evening from 6:00pm to 9:00pm for the opening night.

A flash of harmless lightning,
A mist of rainbow dyes,
The burnished sunbeams brightening,
From flower to flower he flies.
- John Tabb -

This morning I found a hummingbird who had struggled against a screen 
on my back deck. His beak was caught halfway through it and he was
laying on the ledge exhausted. I picked him up and held him in my hands
while I sat in the sun with my 9 year old son, Jonah. After about 25 minutes, and much to our delight and relief, this little male hummingbird flew from my hand in a blur.

Keep your face to the sunshine
and you will never see the shadows.
It's what sunflowers do.
