Cultivate ~

More playing with the Inktense watercolors, with Joanne Sharpe showing us how to layer with stencils n ' such.  This is just my quick mini-version of the lovely and beautiful exercise Joanne created for us to do... I hope to get some time to go back and do it again... but in the meantime, love this spray stuff - Dylusions this was called, in a golden yellow.  It came in my kit from Christy Tomlinson's Scarlet Lime Store, and so it was fun to have this spray and stencil handy to use for Joanne's fabulous ColorLove class!
And our beautiful little cottage garden is blooming and coming into it's own... as we have been weeding, pruning, thinning... laboriously!  {but in JOY!}
And it is looking so nice... {the garden that is}
Until... the canine version of thinning plants came to our yard.  Those were my full box of beets.  Also the carrots got dug up too... although this pic doesn't show that cuz that just happened yesterday!
The black and white 'thing' came along.  
Yup.
The WTBC.  
Wild Thing Border Collie in the GARDEN~BAD Dog.  Bad!
Who can resist fresh soil? Not this one.  And so who needs to thin out plants?  
Not us.

Not... anymore.

Georgia.  Begging to get into the garden, now that she has been LOCKED out.  

What's can ya do but sit back, and say "Georgia." 
Georgia did it. 
{Glad I planted extra}

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm posting some favorite pics... taking inspiration from photos of my garden last summer!
I sure love to take photographs... and I've been experimenting with some ideas for some colorful thread play, patterns, transfer... collage.





Top picture were our Martha Washington geraniums from the patio garden last summer.  Then late in summer, the Mums were stealing the show!

Not only can I not remember the name of the flowers in the picture below, but I can't wait to see them again this SPRING!


In honor of St. Valentine who, through ancient historical facts, was martyred for his belief in MARRIAGE, because he continued to marry men and women, refusing to bow down to an Emperor's dictate that no one would be married.  The (Roman I believe) dictator did not want his soldiers to be "tied down" by a family; to constantly be longing to go home... and the dictator wanted his soldiers to be more focused on going/staying in wars. Now, I don't have all the facts, but that is what I learned was the "beginning" of the heritage of this special day of celebration, and why we call it "Saint Valentine's Day."
