May 11 – Sun.
A.M. call from Art & Vi for Mother’s Day –
Richters over to bring a gift for B (a coffee warmer, very nice) – Peggy’s birthday too, she brought over her presents to show us –
Out for a stroll before noon – the wild flower is in full glory still – the trilliums as large or larger than any I have found in the woods –
A good chicken dinner – Call from Sally.
Out several times in the afternoon – a visit to the studio, got out the bluebird picture – it definitely seems now that the bluebird should be fantastic, not realistic – I saw several other changes to make. Saw a catbird.
