Where I Stand Sunday

Today, I went to a fun 'champagne tasting' event.  I invited and picked up my friend Jan.  We were photographing some of her artwork on her back deck.   She has lots of cats.  This one showed up at her farm recently. It is a very young and very pregnant cat...reminds me of a pregnant teen. Nice as she is, the other cats don't like her around.   Jan says she will let her stay.
There will be kittens soon. 
Jan gave me some of her plants from around her yard.  I got a white lilac bush shooter, some daisies, iris, larkspur and a piece of her grandmother's rose bush to replant at my farmstead.  My farmstead is fairly void of flowers and color..time to get some things to grow here.
Nice day today in Kansas. 
Yesterday, I painted with Susan Carlin - online/portrait workshop.
Will post that one soon, still tweaking it. 

P.S.... Elaine wanted to know some of my favorites at the champagne tasting -
I am not a favorite of the sweet tasting stuff I like those on the dryish or brut side -
(1) Iron Horse's 'Blanc de Noirs' made from predominately Pinot Noir;
(2) Pacific Flowers - a Riesling style;
(3) a French champagne that was luciously good with chocolate (aren't they all) - Mumm/Brut.
Oh ya, how could I forget (I must have been in a hurry)...this event was sponsored by my friends at
L & M Liquors in Downs, Kansas!
Thanks Shannon, Susan and Anna Marie!!
Talk about takin' care of ya, if they don't have it, they will get it and they are so good at recommending some deliciously good ones!

Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. If you'd like to join me by posting a photo on Sunday of places you've been on your blog/photo hosting site/website, leave a comment on this post telling me where I can find you/your photo and I'll add a link to my sidebar so others can find you.

Hi Patty!

I saw your work on the Calyspo Moon Challenge. Nice job! I skipped that challenge this month, I'm trying to keep focused on a few other projects and there is only so much time to work with!

I too am from Colorado and have settled in Kansas...Lawrence. I love the rolling hills up your way. Colorado beauty hits you over the head and is obvious to everyone. Kansas beauty is subtle and deeply have to look and pay attention!!

Have you come across Patrica Scarborough's work? She's up the road near Lincoln. Maybe we can all meet up for a paintout sometime!
