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! Happy Gardening! @jacyjoypals @JayJacyPhotography
Loveliness is everywhere you just have to look around you in God’s creation we see beauty, love, hope and eternity. In our Promise Gardens it is filled with life, color, aroma, art and life from birth to death, creation at its best and worst. How blessed are we to be able to create, sow, seed, grow and tend the generous supply of creation our God’s has given us. It is WHY we love the creation in all of its splendor and have just a little of it in our own gardens. -JacyJoypals
It’s that time again as we prepare for our Rose & Garden Show 2018. A few favorites from the past.
In our eyes, nothing is more beautiful than the blooms of roses and peonies…our favorites! So then, a few rose delights for the eyes and thoughts for the heart!
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
