On a recent visit to Phipps I captured Van Gogh floating on water, or so it seems...
Dreamlike, isn't it?
And what about that yellow flower?
Phipps Conservatory is my favorite place in the world! Six generations of my family have visited the spring and fall flower shows. And I have the pictures to prove it! I am still seeing spots in front of my eyes...
I will be posting my photos of Phipps, old and new, over the next few months. I want you to get to know the place, because...
Just a few months from now, I will be releasing my first in a series of Haiku Storybooks!
Mr. Phipps And His Amazing Glass House, will make his appearance in the fall of 2019.
The story is written, the poems are composed, and the illustrations are being illustrated!
It's just a matter of time!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life... John 3:16
Is there any news better than that?
