Holly is a symbol of the holiday season, but we rarely see photos of the shrub/tree when it blooms in May. I’m lucky enough to have three very large Holly Trees. The tiny little white flowers alongside the red berries was a magical site.

I’ve just returned from Dragon Con in Atlanta, where I participated in the 2014 Art Show. It’s a juried exhibition held each year in the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. The hotel opened in 1967 and was first known as the Regency Hyatt House. The revolutionary 22-story atrium was designed by architect John Calvin Portman, Jr. and it set the tone for future hotel designs.

Whenever I’m at Dragon Con and Hyatt I can’t help but look up!
