Spring has finally sprung here in Georgia! WooHoo!!! We had a wonderfully fun city 'date' last night. While walking down Peachtree toward the first segment, we suddenly heard someone calling C's name, and discovered it was our friend Bob, in town to attend the symphony. Small world and a pleasant surprise!
I'll talk about the date more in a minute, but first I want to share these pics from our morning walking in Piedmont Park. Aren't the flowers just gorgeous!! One of my favorite blooming trees is the Red Bud. Some have really popped this week, while others, like the one below, are just beginning to open their little red buds.
OK, now for our date: We read that Clare Rojas was having a closing reception of her exhibit at the SCAD Gallery at the Woodruff Art Center last night. We love the informal atmosphere at the SCAD Gallery, so decided to walk up and take a peek. What fun! Where have we been? We didn't know of Ms Rojas' work, but are so glad that we've been introduced! I love her little stylized flowers, the incorporation of her art with a bit of quilting, and also the Pennsylvania Dutch Hex symbols. She also sings, under the name of Peggy Honeywell. You can get a glimpse of her life here, or you can Google (or is it Topeka these days?) her to learn even more.
Then we walked to South City Kitchen where we enjoyed another great Fifth Group dinner, sharing the Mussels appetizer plus the veggie plate (me) and the fried catfish (C).
If we don't connect again for a bit, hope you have a happy Easter, Passover, or whatever other occasion you might be celebrating.
