About Me

My photo
Sublimity, OR, United States
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.

7 AM walk in the garden

Yep, it was 7 am and I was out in my piece of the world admiring these fabulous Lupines! **giggle** I just had to share!! My cottage garden is starting to show her summer glory with a fragrant show of perennials including columbine, foxgloves, geum, dephinium, dianthus, and more! The lollipop crabapple tree just finished blooming, and she will be a bird paradise when those tiny apples ripen! The roses down the way are just starting to pop open and I have plugged in a few annuals here and there for color later in the season.

I hope you enjoyed a couple pics! I will be posting more thru out the season. This is the fifth year of this cottage garden and she should be showing all her glory!

Your garden is looking beautiful. This time of year everything looks so fresh and lively, before the heat of August brings on the droop. Have yourself a loveleigh weekend!

I loved the photo of your birdbath with the hanging watering can. Can I have permission to copy this photo to show dh? I'd like to print it out strictly to be able to copy this design in my garden. I promise not to re-copy the photo. Thanks.
