The background graphic above which these three bubbles of maple leaves float is a quote by Albert Schweitzer: “Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf.”

This is one of those days when I wish I had a graphics coach by my side. I’m sure there must be a shorter way to line up shapes perfectly than the one I use. Anyway, once it was done I got right to work on a companion piece which will have the same grey background and different colors in the ovals and outlines.

Meanwhile, my Andromeda is in its next phase — putting out new leaves which will eventually turn green but, right now, are a clear orangey gold. I can’t wait to see how they press! My Sweet Woodruff will be fresh and vibrant all season so I can harvest and process it at my leisure.
