I have an industrious chipmunk living in my garden.  Those little guys don’t quit.  All of the spring tulip bulbs have been unearthed and now he’s going to work on the alliums.  If only I could redirect his energy towards the weeds!

The mastery with which artist Jeffrey Ripple renders his blooms reminds me of the Dutch masters.  I want to call him Jeffrey “Van” Ripple out of respect.
