Dang! I wanted to document each and every monthly angel, with its creator, Alvise Doglioni Majer. This time I forgot.
We had lots of creativity to talk about, though, and the minute I saw her, I was smitten by July! Thank you, Alvise. She has now officially joined the other ladies in the Journey Around the Sun series. The summer critter to be represented is the honey bee. Alvise has two hives on his property now and will expand to four next year. I particularly enjoy the face, halo and wings on this angel. She has a bit of a summer tan.
I’m enjoying a bowl of beef barley soup on this rainy chill of an afternoon. I’m glad I got out to the pond this morning…so sad, however, to find that pesticides were being sprayed in an area where young geese were feeding and the other birds were still busily harvesting worms surfaced after yesterday’s rain. I just don’t understand why we are not more invested in caring for delicate ecosystems. Why would the pristine turf of a sports field take priority? The city of Calgary website explains that the presence of broadleaf weeds is a tripping and safely hazard. But…I digress. I’m praying for the conversion of the human heart, in so many ways.
