Art in the Garden
This weekend I participated in my local Art in the Garden tour and I’m glad I did. Not only was I fortunate enough to spend the day in this garden…
But I met lots of new people, learned several garden tips as well as shared a few of my own–even sold a few books in the process! Call it a new spin on an old concept, but this was a book signing for me and I couldn’t have chosen a better location. Not only is the entire lawn as gorgeous as what you see above, but it felt like I could have been sitting in Jennifer’s Garden.
Fountain reminds you of Jax, doesn’t it? :)
It did me! And might I add, it was a welcome reminder–that man is hot AND sweet! But I digress (as often happens when I’m discussing my delightful heroes). My appreciation for assignment to this perfect setting goes to the garden tour hostess Blondine and homeowner of this lush space, Beth. Mind you this was only one of the magnificent homes on the tour. There were almost a dozen to visit, including a local farm where guests received a sample of homegrown wine. Growing grapes on the farm, are we?
In addition to my books and garden boxes (stay tuned to my garden blog BloominThyme and subscribe for more details on these beauties), visitors to this particular garden could choose from an array of colorful paintings, courtesy of Jan, shown below.
Her work is wonderful and fit in quite nicely with her surroundings.
