GARDEN SCULPTURE I PAINTED CALLED “ONE GOOD TERN, DESERVES ANOTHER”
Hello my friends!! I’ve been so busy these past couple of weeks and am just now getting caught up on my blogs and journals. When spring hits in Portland…..the garden doesn’t wait!!!
CLICK THE ARROW ON THE VIDEO BELOW TO SEE MY GARDEN YESTERDAY!!
ABOVE: A STUNNING ROSE THAT IS PRIZED FOR IT’S THORNS
This rose is planted strategically in the garden where the flat translucent red thorns catch the backlighting from the afternoon sun. I purchased it last summer on an outing with Frankie and Susan and am SO glad I bought it!!
ABOVE: THE PLANTS ARE STARTING TO GROW SO FAST YOU CAN HEAR THEM SQUEEK!
This is one of the “rooms” in the front beds that I am redoing with art and furniture. I need to get some more annuals for this area

I am getting this area where the old tree was cut down last year. I decided to showcase the trunk and give it some “decor” including the butterfly bench and will have orange zinnias and nicotiana towering in the later summer
