As I sat out on the porch this morning I began to see some early signs of the seasonal change.This is what I love so much,the cusp of change in the land. It's my absolute favorite emotional connection to the land.The hint of a warmer color in the dogwoods and sycamore trees; the slight change in the growth rate of the grasses as they begin to predict fall to come. We have about 6 weeks to go, but that nourishes my tired soul, just knowing fall is on the way. Summer has always been the most difficult season for me, so I will be happy to leave it behind. I so love fall and winter as a landscape painter. 



Tip of the Day -Aquarium Care

The proper way to change water in a tank is to do it gradually. First unplug any lights and equipment before cleaning the aquarium. Change approximately one third of the water in the aquarium every one to two weeks. Water from the tap should be treated accordingly before adding to the tank and adjusted within two degrees of the aquarium. Again, check with your local retailer when purchasing fish. Some treatments allow the tap water to be ready in as little as an hour, while others need to sit overnight before being added to the tank.
