I may be rushing summer a bit with these archival photos, but I’m thinking it’s blackberry picking season about now. Grasses and sweet peas popping open, Goldfinches flashing among them, and memories of my blue ladder wedged in the steep hillside…
Mm-mm! Have a sweet week ~ xo Pierr

It’s been years since I worked a jigsaw puzzle. Every summer my sister and I would sit with a bowl of grapes (or m&m’s) and 1,000-piece puzzle and two rules: edge pieces linked first before any reward; then one grape (or m&m) per interior piece fit. We especially liked the challenge of a Big Ben puzzle farm scene; red barn in the distance with dark and darker furrowed earth coming toward us. Every piece had two or three straight sides. To my seven-year-old-self, it seemed we worked that puzzle for years. I loved every minute.
One of my favorite sites on Etsy is GENINNE’S. When I learned that her painting “Narangas” had been made into a jigsaw puzzle I had to have it: GALISON. You see I’ve made good progress since its arrival a couple days ago…even without grapes (or m&m’s). These days the satisfaction of a piece well fit is its own reward.
Have a beautiful week! xo Pierr
