Abundance, The July Garden

When there are days, as my Mother used to say, "the world is going to hell in a hand basket", I take refuge in the garden. And this year despite the dry and then torrential rains with hail, she has rewarded me abundantly. These photos are the studio garden, a sloped area facing north.

  1. What G L O R Y !!! Gardens have such power, extra kinds of rays emanate. Here, in North Carolina muggy 97degree heat, this morning's fortunate wind makes my one red rose dance.

    1. Thanks so much Patrick, it is a much needed retreat these days. Maybe a bit too big but there can be more wild parts.

    2. Oh I love your garden do you do it all yourself? It's full to the brim. I am just learning with my garden had a few disasters this year putting plants in the wrong place. I would live a studio in the garden but resources are scarce so my upstairs room will suffice. I also like wild parts to the garden. Keep posting photos Im inspired. I'll have to look more closely on my laptop as I'm on my phone and can't decipher the plants /flowers.
