My Garden of Weeds, Garden of Knowledge blooms.

I am not pulling weeds, I am writing papers and taking tests and quizzes and observing classes. My creative life is on hold for a bit. But here are some images I snapped last week of my flowers. My mini pond is about overun with honeysuckle and iris. The big pond is teeming with tadpoles.
I am commuting several days a week to university and have a lot of stress. As the oldest student I feel I have a lot to lose if I fail! I mean, my life may be over half over, but I am determined to be productive. I have a long road ahead of me. I must in order to teach French, pass the OPI or oral proficiency interview. But now my head is all Spanish, and I don't have the c0ursework to graduate in that, it would take years more schooling. Alternate certification programs dont exist in foreign language these days. So this summer I have embarked on a new journey. I do miss creating. But my studio is not as enticing as the barn. Gotta go ride and burn off some stress! Happy Trails and hope you enjoyed my garden.

hey girl, you're studying hard for a greater good, to teach and inspire students!
i see your garden is thriving... our clematis just wilted and shrank away LOL.
Even though you're busy with studies & not crafting as much, it's always nice to see what you're up to :O)
