Purple trees (by Suzie)

My thanks to Anthony McCarthy, who thought I might like the art of another Maine resident, Arla Patch. He was right. I find it gorgeous and evocative.

This work, made of polymer clay, is called "Ferns and Purple Trees." Arla writes: "Once in California, I saw a huge purple tree in full bloom. I've never forgotten it."

I don't know what kind of tree she saw, but I love the jacarandas blooming in spring in Florida. As fall approaches, we can talk about spring, can't we?
