’tis a wild rose
I’ve been busy outside. It is beautiful weather here in NE Florida, and I am taking advantage of it. I’ve been tidying up some areas and re-arranging some flower beds. Gardens are like canvases .. only of dirt. :) Of course, I’ve added to my winter vegetable garden and planted a few more herbs.
(white radishes are a new addition)
Delicious dishes to come of Thyme planted in garden vessel
(this very heavy shell vessel was abandoned..can you imagine!)
Last but most certainly not least, I am slowly creating my rose garden which will mainly consist of antique roses. They are my most favorite roses of all..tough survivors they are and low maintenance. I like that in roses and in people..I tend to be that way myself.
It will be a place to paint roses, gather a few to enjoy inside, or simply to linger on the bench (another abandoned thing) in fragrant silence…one of my places to step away from the world (painting in the studio is another).
I hope you have such a place.. Speaking of roses. Note on Last Dance: The pink rose bud was the last one from my antique climbing rose-bush (it died..no actually I think it was “murdered”). :( I still have the little antique bottle..it was found in the attic of an 1880 house we are working on (more on that in time). This painting sold some years ago, and much to my regret, I have no idea who owns it. A mistake I let happen as a rookie artist. Well, enough for now. I’ve still not shared this new blog site on my facebook page. I think I like having a little place to come and go as I please NO obligation or stress about blog post deadlines. I know the “networking” experts advise having a regular schedule. I did that on my gypsy-heart blog..and that is where it all went awry for me. I stopped enjoying it. So I’ll come here when and if I have something to say..not just rambling words because I have to be on my blog schedule. so until that happens again…
Enjoy the journey!
