ICE CREAM DAYS

With Memorial Day just
around the corner,
it's no wonder
kids will be craving ice cream
or fancy swirl frozen custard.

Summer must be 'round the corner.

(Just don't forget the napkins!)

SCENES FROM
OLD LEMP BREWERY

America's first lager beer,
Lemp was built in 1840
and brewed important brands
of bottled beer in St. Louis,
including Lemp, Greisedieck,
and Falstaff,
but lies inactive today!

The all brick headquarters is
still standing and includes
magnificent towering brick silos.

MORNING GREETING

Maya saying hi to Porter.
Or is it
Porter saying hi to Maya?

(Looks like reciprocal love.)

BIRTH OF
A TEA POT

With just 2 days of school left,
I am so relieved John's ceramic piece
made it through the kiln in time.

Such a creative force, and natural artist,
my autistic student worked a piece of clay,
shaped and formed it into
an original design, a shape and color
for his very first tea pot.

I love the color glaze he chose 
for the final firing.

A tea pot is born!

PINK PERFECTION

The pink lotus (nelumbo nucifera),
the most sacred of all lotus species,
is getting ready to bloom.

Each part of the pink lotus
(roots, stem, petals, leaves, seeds)
has medicinal and metaphysical properties,
with effects that are narcotic and euphoric.

My favorite part is the visual beauty
of this magnificent plant.
