I have a little crazy quilt patio next to my studio that I call the summer office. What a great place to work and think when the weather is warm!
Its fun to tuck statues into the garden during the summer. When the plants are lush they are little visual surprises.
My painting of crazy rabbit, its outside and weathering. In a few years it will deconstruct itself, its painted on plywood. I like that things like this are not forever.
This was two years ago, my gardens change every year. I used to hate to yank up old plants but I’m converted and work to keep things fresh and healthy. Almost time to chuck in the fertilizer and get ready for spring.
Since its still raining today here are a few more shots of celebrating spring. It will come!
Late last summer I found an orangey pinky delphinium. I put it in the greenhouse for the winter. The most beautiful plant I have ever seen!
Another project: cement leaf fountains. I have found a friend with acanthus leaves, now we just have to wait for summer and giant leaves! I love my butterfly bowling ball orb. It has wintered really well.
A little chickadee landed on this driftwood and shell hanger from pieces I found on the beach–almost long enough to have his picture taken.
Zorro is my Mushka’s nephew, we Zorro sat for a few days last summer. He was my shadow as I worked in the gardens.
I designed my garden hanging window using this wrought bunny for inspiration. Another summer class! Etching old windows for outdoor pretties.
