The Promise Garden is lighting up every day with flowering peonies and nothing makes our hearts happier than seeing this beautiful “smiling-at-us” yellow peony in full bloom. We call the yellow peony our “Happy Peony” because every time one blooms we burst out with joy and a huge smile. You can see why we love them so much. -Happy Gardening!
One of the most important aspects of gardening is the ability to create beautiful art work for your home, to share, gift and cheer. As Master Gardeners and Artists, we take great care and joy in creating beautiful art for our homes and to share with others. These images were photographed this morning after rain so that I could create art for 2018 Rose & Garden Show. The backdrop is my handpainted window which overlooks the Promise Gardens and which adds additional impact and beauty to the vases. So then, it is not just the creating-tending gardens but also the sharing through giving, designing, creating art and memories. Art extends the life of what we have enjoyed from our gardens in color, light, aroma and beauty. It is no wonder that our famous artists were lovers of gardens as well!
