Hello at the end of a wonderful and successful Art in the Garden show.

It’s been a most beautiful weekend round here. The garden was beautiful. Everyone seemed to love visiting it.


And everyone stepped up to our interactive canvas and drew.

We listened to the lovely music of Lorna and Mark Fortin

And the flowers shone, and people wandered the garden and looked at the art and drew on the canvas.

At the end of the day, that magical canvas I began on Thursday ended up looking like this:

Thank you everyone who visited my garden, who bought my art and cards, thank you everyone who said lovely things about my garden, thank you my friends who made the special trip out to support me; especially thank you to my gardening friends Rosemary for the beautiful roses, and Michelle and Ken for the pots of hostas and ginger, so unexpected, so loving and sweet.

And, as a thank you to my garden for looking so very beautiful, I’ve given it a good watering this evening.

Rosemary, your roses are so fragrant and gorgeous by my bed tonight. I might have to beg a cutting later on in the year. 😀
