I’m doing double duty with Cee’s Flower of the Day today. My neighbor told me these are honeysuckle, but they’re not like the yellow vine I remember from New Jersey. My friend Linda was able to specifically identify them as cape honeysuckle.

This week’s dozenly dose of creative articles:
- Personally, I love reading young adult novels. Here are this year’s best sellers.
- Breathtaking blue quilts.
- This looks like a great workspace setup.
- Photos of surreal beauty and long-past glory…
- Did you know you can cultivate habits that make you smarter?
- These dishes give me the creeps, and yet I admire their artistry.
- Don’t fall into the comparison trap. Would you believe Henri Matisse felt he did not measure up to the other artists of his day?
- Kauai is on my bucket list, but one of my favorite artists is there now.
- The ultimate artist DIY—making your own paints.
- Inspiration for writers.
- Beautiful illustrations by Tina MacNaughton.
- Map of the world, redesigned to eliminate distortion.

Are you ready for a baker’s dozen doses of inspiration?
One day last May, my neighbor caught me outside with my camera. I confessed I was taking pictures of his pomegranates.
“Are you putting them on your blog?” he asked.
“I’ll be famous,” he said.
So if you see Dave Winans, tell him you saw his pomegranates on ARHtistic License.
The pomegranate starts out as a red blossom.
See the bulbous section near the base of the bloom? That’s where the fruit will form and gradually ripen.
Unless it pops open prematurely and becomes a meal.

When I saw this week’s theme for the Tuesday Photo Challenge, I thought, “What a great theme! If only I could think of a shot to take.”
You see, I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in music education. I taught elementary general music for twelve and a half years in two different centuries and two different states.
I sighed and glanced around my very messy study. This is what I saw:
Recorder and drumstick bouquets
Books about music (and art)
My music stand, with my recorder book open to some duets I checked out last night.
A mountain dulcimer made in the seventies by a friend’s brother; a “tick-tock” woodblock; a cabasa, and a cricket scraper.
Then I went to the living room, where my piano resides.
