Sunflower Season on Planet Joy

Summer has been good so far, I've been staying close to my home planet, nurturing my garden and getting the studio back up to speed. I am filled with gratitude as I say "thank you" with all my heart to those who shopped our emergency liquidation sale, thanks to all of you it was a tremendous success! Meanwhile, I've been getting the studio back in working order and it was spare and inviting whilst I was producing custom ruanas for Kohenet ordination.

It is now it is set up for production again with a new larger sewing station for the new "vintage" Baby Lock serger and my trusty Bernina.

The garden is flourishing even though we are experiencing a terrible wildfire season in the PNW.
If I had my way, I'd rather be at the beach!
Despite the less than optimal atmospheric conditions, the gardens on Planet Joy are very welcoming and colorful this year, the eggplants, peppers, tomatoes, basil, squash, sunflowers and more are thriving and ripening!
First tomato!

A friend of mine said he could taste tears in the pool water now that summer is waning. I notice the sun setting a little earlier, a hint of crisp morning air alluding at the season ahead. . . Me, I'm ramping up for the last month of summer and hoping for a good Indian Summer too!
