That cute little elephant showed up last week, a gift from Ellen. The note of encouragement read, “There are other cactus in the desert.”
(I have awesome friends.)
A couple months ago I had the chance to meet Regina in person, while visiting Tucson for work. Like Ellen, I’ve followed Regina online for nearly a decade. It was a delight to see her, and her gorgeous artwork, in real life. I had to buy a couple of her Frida paintings — which were finally framed and hung this weekend with a handcut “Country Road, Take Me Home” piece from my friend Angie.
Again, sweet heavens — I have some talented women in my life.
With these bursts of color, and the tomatoes teeming in the garden, the Heirloom Hacienda is feeling like home.
