I decided to make peace with the month of May and the dreaded and intense garden tending work that takes me away from my studio time. I've decided to embrace May fully and just step up and declare it garden tending month. It is now what I do in May. Meeting a challenge is always about the way you frame your thinking. On the first day of June as I return to the studio, I know all that tending is worth it. I hope my studio muse will agree.
