If all continues according to my plans, this will be my last summer in my current gardens.
What a journey it has been from the 6 acre working farm environment I found
to the charming and romantic gardens which I created here. This image was taken from
the same spot as the one above it several years later. More than 50 weddings have taken place in the
gardens. Garden groups came from far and wide. So many summer parties have been hosted in these gardens and it
has served as a venue for many non profit and political events. Ultimately it became my portrait park with it’s many
beautiful vignettes against which to create interesting and beautiful portrait backgrounds.
The blind and the hearing impaired came to touch the large foliage, of the Pedicides (sp),
and the soft fuzzy foliage of the lambs ear, the prickles of the many specimen conifers.
There is the sweet fragrance of honeysuckle and roses.The garden has been shown on HGTV’S
“The Good Life”. Alas for me it is a work of art complete. People ask me how I can leave it.
It is actually not hard. I evolved into an artist in this garden. I am ready to move on.
So much of my time is now spent in front of a computer creating other forms of art which I love.
All is good.
