Cats: My husband and I live with three cats: Mama Cat (she rules the roost, or tries to), her son Porter (a gray-striped teddy bear), and Chai (warm, sweet, and spicy, like his namesake). They’re the cats in the sidebar pictures.
Gardening: I think of gardens and gardening as botanical painting – instead of paints and brushes, I use plants and flowers. My favorites are roses, daylilies, hostas, and hardy perennials. Fragrance is a plus. I’ve included pictures from my garden on these pages.
In addition, I enjoy playing music (keyboard music of all periods and Medieval-Renaissance music on recorders), traveling, enjoying good food and drink with friends, and reading.
