The flowers appear on the earth,
The time of singing has come
Song of Solomon 2:12
What can I say? The garden ~ the roses ~ simply glorious!
I love the drift of roses framing the lupine!
As well as the bunny in my mother's cauldron!
Walking out onto the back patio is to walk into a space where the air is saturated in the scent of roses!
From every angle, it just astounds! So lovely! What a gift this garden is!
Just beautiful! I can't get over it!
In my wildest dreams, I never imagined it would be as beautiful as this! Truly a lovely gift from God, who brought them all into bloom at the same time and mingled their lovely scents into the most perfect perfume!
Awake, O north wind,
And come, O south wind!
Blow upon my garden,
Let its fragrance be wafted abroad.
Song of Solomon 4:16
The side garden continues to grow and look lovelier by the day as well!
Those gloomy grey skies bring the moisture and temperatures that have brought everything into such a wondrous state this year! And amazingly, the mosquitos, which were already miserable by this time last year, have been few and far between!
I'm hoping for a sunny morning so that I can get out into the garden and paint! Today, I had a warm up exercise with one of the lessons from my painting workshop. I'm learning so much from Dreama Tolle Perry and her Dream Love Paint workshop! It is a completely different style of painting than I have done before and it's helping me to lighten up, brighten up and loosen up! All three of those are goals which I hope to achieve in my painting this year! Looking forward to seeing how these skills translate when painting my own work rather than that of someone else's.
