Sarah brought the soup, I provided bread, and Ashley provided all the rest.
How lucky I was to spend the afternoon with friends who feed my creative spirit. Ashley gave us a presentation of the beautiful new book he is working on. I am not able to show it here, but he will be showing it to his publishers in New York next week.
I checked out Ashley’s night blooming cereus plant, remembering midnight visits last summer, with other islanders, to see the once a year blossoms. I don’t know what it is about his studio, but that plant sure likes it. It flowered 7 different times last summer, and three of the times were with double blossoms! Today, though, there were no buds in sight…until I turned around to look at the unassuming aloe plant.
