Autumn Whispers

Autumn Whispers its final colors and readies for its December and the beauty of winter foliage, snow and landscapes.  The colors are so breathtaking in person that I created many “Autumn Whispers Art on Canvas” pieces for display and sale.  What a beautiful and colorful world we can capture and enjoy!

With what a glory comes and goes the year!
The buds of spring, those beautiful harbingers
Of sunny skies and cloudless times, enjoy
Life’s newness, and earth’s garniture spread out;
And when the silver habit of the clouds
Comes down upon the autumn sun, and with
A sober gladness the old year takes up
His bright inheritance of golden fruits,
A pomp and pageant fill the splendid scene….
(Autumn: Quote: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

Promise Gardens Autumn Song

Autumn Song*

Know’st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf?

And how the swift beat of the brain
Falters because it is in vain,
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf
Knowest thou not? and how the chief
Of joys seems—not to suffer pain?

Know’st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the soul feels like a dried sheaf
Bound up at length for harvesting,And how death seems a comely thing
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf?
*Dante Gabriel Rossetti

The Art of Flowers Displayed

The most satisfying photography is that which captures the beauty of Creation in all of its glory in the gardens but also displayed so beautifully in art in the home.  This is what photographers and artists that capture landscapes, florals and living things love most.  We see it, love it, capture it, share it and then enjoy the art of it displayed.  Thus it is in the Promise Gardens, beauty on display outdoors and beauty continued in the home.  The photography below showcases favorites of roses-peonies created for a design palette in a huge “Art on Canvas” display that becomes the focal point of any interior design.  The colors “POP” and draw the viewer into the room and sets a tranquil mood of beauty. _jacyjoypals

The Flowers by Robert Louis Stevenson
~~~
All the names I know from nurse:
Gardener’s garters, Shepherd’s purse,
Bachelor’s buttons, Lady’s smock,
And the Lady Hollyhock.

Fairy places, fairy things,
Fairy woods where the wild bee wings,
Tiny trees for tiny dames–
These must all be fairy names!

Tiny woods below whose boughs
Shady fairies weave a house;
Tiny tree-tops, rose or thyme,
Where the braver fairies climb!

Fair are grown-up people’s trees,
But the fairest woods are these;
Where, if I were not so tall,
I should live for good and all.

FALLing in Love

The Promise Gardens fall have been glorious thus far as the season colors change.  We have been documenting it through photographs and the Camera Awesome app for iPhone.  It is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the gardens.  Take a peek…  Check our images at Instagram for 2013 fall and our HDRChic sites for fabulous fall places.

Welcome December

A Day in the Life #21The Promise Gardens finish their season with amazing colors and surrounded by beautiful foliage to close out November.  Preparations for the winter gardens is underway with a new theme this year.  It doesn’t have to be a bare bones garden over winter but interesting and beautiful treatments to cheer in winter can be added with a backdrop of glorious white snow.  Until then, the last look at the November foliage before the wind carries all of the foliage away.

Oh Falling Leaves…

…you will be missed — your beauty and hues, twirling in the breeze, sunlit glows, shade from the heat, the canopy over lovely places… Today the storm is here, raining heavily, windy and we watch the leaves blow in the wind and fall to be gathered later.  We will miss you…
