My husband is sweet.

While I was in Mendocino at that workshop, Matt and Carlos drove down for all but one night to be able to hang out with me in the evenings after class. The two of them had fun doing all kinds of things during the daytime - going to the beach, the park, and the Mendocino Botanical Garden. Despite the fun I was having in class, I was feeling pretty bummed about not being able to go to the garden with them, especially since I had to drive by it every day on my way to and from class, and a giant banner outside announced that the dahlias were in bloom. I love dahlias.

How thoughtful of Matt to take all of these absolutely beautiful pictures for me...







Isn't this one amazing? I know I said I didn't want any more tattoos, but these gorgeous dahlias are tempting me!



the sweetest picture of them all, of course

Aren't those pictures awesome? If there were a few more of them, I'd be tempted to make a calendar out of them all.

Oh, and the highlight of the trip for Carlos had to be the masses of dead jellyfish washed up on the beach.

Love the pictures of the flowers, and if you want to get a tattoo, I'll get one with you up there if you know of anyone that has vegan ink!

Don't tempt me Roni! :-) My tattoo guy, Henry, has vegan ink, but he is usually booked a couple of months in advance.

Yeah, more tatoo's sounds good. Henry may have some time, you never know. The shop is closing soon.

I love the magenta pompon one. I grew some from seed one summer & they all come out looking like a perfect ball. Lovely!

How wonderfully sweet of your husband. Those photos are wonderful. I would have been dying to go into that garden myself.
