Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful;
Eleanor couldn't resist getting in on the action and showing her support!
Her colors tell of the fall to come. In New England you always find a cannon in the town common. I'm not sure why, but it's a bit of history to enjoy.
Back to the station to wait for the bus to take us home. We really had fun taking pictures and enjoying the morning together. It's amazing how much history and art surrounds us when you slow down and take a look.
This wheelchair and crutches sculpture on the common (in Greenfield, MA) caught our eye.
It was created by James Kitchen on commission for the Stavros Center for Independent Living to make a statement about freedom for people with disabilities.
Old Glory and Eleanor both blowing in the warm summer breeze!
A shady bench was a welcome break for John and Eleanor (and me too!)
Once we're home, it's flower time! I was hoping to have Part IV of the Granny Square Project finished. As it turns out, this installment is much more about "doing" than research and that just takes more time!
I'm sure it's going to be worth it! Please look for it later in the week.
If you haven't seen it yet there are links to Parts I, II and III in my sidebar.

Can you imagine if our world was devoid of color? A black and white existence? In the movie Pleasantville the main characters find themselves trapped in a black and white TV show set in the seemingly idyllic 1950’s. It’s only when they begin to experience raw emotions and raise questions about what lies beyond what they know that we see color brighten, enhance and expand their world.
I made these squares to demonstrate different ways to create harmony. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the purple, orange and green, but the wheel doesn’t lie, and in fact it has grown on me! In addition to the themes the wheel generates, nature is an outstanding source for telling us what colors go together. A walk in the woods, a sunrise or sunset, plants and animals - they all offer us suggestions for making the most of our colors. When you think about it, nature is the true source of our color - sun reflecting through drops of water to create a rainbow, and dyes made from plants are at the root of all we enjoy today!
