Painting the Gardens with Awesome Eye Candy

Painting the Garden…It’s All About the Flowers

Update!  This summer has been beautiful with every color of the rainbow and what a great place to be during this Covid-19 season!  It’s is always difficult with confinement of any kind but the ability to spend time in your garden catching up on overdue chores has been a true blessing!  There is nothing like being in the gardens!

Flowers and color, where would we be without them in the garden?  We have the lovely greens of grass, trees and leafy plants and the varied blues of the sky as our backdrop so each year for the Promise Gardens Rose & Flower Show, we have every color/hue imaginable on display.  In our container gardening areas and special beds, we mix it up each year with new color combinations and plants to create “awesome eye-candy” for our visitors, friends, family and of course, our photography.  This is a special treat for me as a designer deciding what “new” and “old” creations I can design for a visual and aromatic feast.

A friend recently shared that their favorite part of visiting Promise Gardens was “just as I enter the gate area, the aroma of roses and flowers entice me in and then my eyes just take it all in and I swear each time I will recreate this myself at home so I can see and smell it all day long.”   Well, that is also one of my favorite things too!

Promise Gardens 2020

The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God’s heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
~Dorothy Frances Gurney, “Garden Thoughts”

A White Rose

THE red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

John Boyle O’Reilly. 1844–1890
