About Me

I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby. After 10 years I quit the day job to pursue my art as a full time passion.

some new garden pics

Many of you who have known me for a while, have discovered my other passion--cottage gardening. My cottage garden has suffered this year, because (as I joke now--but it wasn't funny when it happened) Dr. Death paid a visit in early spring. He hates me to tell the story, but my other half (DH Jim) thought he would help out and spray weed preventer in my cottage garden. Nothing else to say other than it has taken all season to get things back to normal, and he stays at least 6 feet from the edge of my gardens.

But now, on the eve of the rainy season, the cottage garden is glorious and even this young first year clematis perked a few blooms. When I took these pics, it had just finished a rain shower, so everything was so beautiful and colorful!

Beautiful Garden, Debbi! I love gardening too, but this year has not been good for my family, so mine suffered a bit too. But, there's always next year!

Your garden is lucious! I wish I could get the "hang" of it. I love the idea but I just can't seem to get things going to grow. Oh, and I've met that Dr. D before myself. Me no likey.

Your garden is absolutely beautiful Debbi, and I can see how you really care for it. Why do men like to spray things or throw down fertilizer but do non of the tending? Well mine is like that anyway LOL. So happy to see you got it back to the way it should be :)
