Rosy Future, Daily Everglades Painting by JoAnn Sanborn

The clouds, weather, and landscape have combined to give us a beautiful few days. We've done some work around the garden to get ready for the fall season. Here on Marco Island the drier weather means that its the planting season. Gone are the punishing rains and the rottingly high humidity. We've started a couple of tomato plants, some lettuce, basil and a lavender plant. Our rosemary from a few years ago is a beautiful established bush and smells heavenly when we brush past, and our pot of mint is growing nicely. Our lot is tiny, so it's easy to keep up with just a little work. I'll get some geraniums for color at the Island Garden Center today. Perhaps all this sprucing up will make me want to paint in the yard instead of going further afield into the Everglades.

Rosy Future, today's Everglades painting can be interpreted as you like. Perhaps you can picture yourself following the waterway out to a happy fishing trip. Perhaps you've got a new baby or a favorite child and want to think of them as having a rosy future. Maybe it's the economy, and you want to remain positive despite some financial setbacks. On the whole, we Americans are a positive people, hardworking and innovative, and ready to take on the future in a hopeful way. I'm positive that we'll have a new start and a rosy future regardless of the winner. What does Rosy Future say to you?
