Gardening in Florida
The tropicals all died the first year
in the cold...
and so I decided to go with hardier plants..
plants that I knew could tolerate
some chilly weather
The Mexican petunias above are like weeds
and invasive but they are so pretty...
so I planted them in the pool cage
and in pots where they cannot escape and
take over the world...
My Veggie garden was almost a complete failure..
my herbs grew well.. but we have very
different seasons here and I would have to
make raised beds due to the sand, so I am not in a hurry to
conquer that right now...
but as you know...
Gardens and flowers are always on my mind...
So I created
for the summer issue of
which will be available
I just received my copy in the mail
which made my day...
The article includes the instructions to make
my little books..
and thoughts on peering through the garden
to find a treasure ..
to uncover the hidden beauty that lies
just beyond our sight....
and if that wasn't nice enough...
I learned that
two of my art journal spreads in my
Antique Record Journal
will be featured
in Somerset Apprentice...
you can go here to
see the spreads and try to figure out which pages
and so I have had some success
and as you can see
they seem to like it here...
Ciao for now
