Bloomin' Schwantesia and a New Soul Window

So just before the sun illuminates this little Schwantesia, the bud of its single flower is still closed- most photos show the full bloom, but here it is in the moments just before....

And behind the little mesemb is one of my new Soul Windows; I've done several hands now, this is the Night Hand, I'll show the Day Hand later (too lazy to photograph it!). On the right is a bowed psaltery by James Jones. I'm learning to play it, gorgeous sound!

Have a wonderful holiday!


  1. Hi Marla, I'm looking at a few blogs again, including yours. I just saw all of the damage from Matthew, and hope your garden is recovering by now!

  2. Hi, Ellen!
    Once we got the roof and our spare room repaired (it blew out) we turned our attention to the garden, and it looks pretty Tim Burton, but it is alive and beginning to grow again.... Thanks for your good thoughts! -M

  3. Hi Marla!
    I love the new Soul Window! Happy New year!

  4. Happy New Year, Gail!! Glad you like the new Soul Window.
