This is the time of year when I feel most productive and also most distracted. When I am in my studio I think of being in the garden. And when I am in the garden I think of being in the studio. Luckily they are right next to each other so I can easily go back and forth. Unfortunately I track mud into the studio and get paint on the gardening tools.

I think these vein like lines are gorgeous and the color so intense while hidden within the pulpy shrunken pod. It is nutmeg! (courtesy of my Mom's friend who brought it back from Jamaica). The red and gold covering is the mace, also a spice, and beneath there is a thin shell which cracks off and you are left with the nutmeg for grating. Beautiful.
