seeds and paint

December 31, 2011

On the last day of class Deni, a wondrous girl of 15, came to class with fabric paint and flower seeds for our garden.  Deni is a brilliant artist, the oldest in a family of 4..Melissa-the-entomologist who has turned  into a very fine artist and Josh, a smart, sweet lad who builds boats, bird houses and paints.

Adali made a hummingbird feeder out of clay. As soon as we hung it a humming bird came to drink! It works! She also made an amazing hummingbird sock puppet and an angel out of coffee filters and a mustard lid.

Genesis painted beautiful shirts. She and Jasmine have become art sisters. Genesis wants to be a photographer. I share her garden pictures here. This girl needs a camera!

I have amazing kids!  It’s very cool.

Holiday Miracles

December 14, 2011
One of our residents came to the class today. She had bought 4 seed packs,broccoli, cauliflower, mustard and cabbage for our garden. Adali made a hummingbird feeder out of clay, and as soon as we hung it, filled with 1 part sugar and 3 parts water, one came and drank!
Miracles abound when you don’t watch too closely.
