Art and a pink monkeyflower in a native plant garden…

Now September…


The August Break was fun and I saw lots of great photos by scrolling through the Flickr site as well as visiting new blogs. Such creative people out there!

Last Saturday I went to an art exhibit in Walnut Creek at the Bedford Gallery (at the Lesher Performing Arts Center). It was such an exhilarating experience that I must share some photos. The exhibit was called Unbound, A National Exhibition of Book Art and featured the book in multiple interpretations (I didn’t see any Kindles, though) The exhibit will be open until September 19, so if you live near, do not miss this show!
