Garden plans

One thing I am looking forward to about my summer at home is taking care of my somewhat neglected garden. For the last few years, it’s been hard to grow annuals or have containers because I was away for long periods of time teaching in different places. So this summer, besides doing lots of maintenance around the house, I will actually be able to plant flowers that serve two purposes. I will enjoy looking at them every day, and when I take a break from weeding and mulching and feeding them, I’ll get to sketch them too.

    Love the colors and energy…and a home garden will be lovely to sketch through the summer.


  3. Great move! I planted an “art garden” last year and it was a continual source of inspiration. I grew only things I wanted to paint. I’ve just planted this year’s garden and look forward to good things to come. Sorry your workshops were cancelled– it’s a total bummer. It will be hard for a few annuals to make up the loss, but I’m sure you’ll get plenty of inspiration from them.

    Good Evening dear Shari,

    I use similar plastic baskets for Orchids.
    Very beautiful sketch.



  5. Beautiful flowers, I had a lot of fun planting my impatiens, and vegetable garden on Victoria Day Sunday.
