But...I'm not going to write about this.Because it's February!
it's Time to PAINT the Garden.
Oh! how I love to paint my garden. (It's always much more beautiful in my dreams.) Reality requires work.
How to paint a garden? Use the months of January, Feb and March and April to dream about your window vignettes. What should they look like? Imagine each window as a frame to a beautiful, ever changing painting. With God as the artist, it is always a masterpiece.
My paintings change season by season, day by day. Add bark and evergreens for interesting textures on wintry days, and add more color for spring and summer.
Yes, my garden is still an all you can eat buffet for the many critters living nearby, deer, squirrel, fox, groundhogs, and raccoon. Last year, we caught three groundhogs in Have-A-Hearts. Then turned them free miles away. Could the same ones have returned?
We have three.
My dad and mice...
Dad caught a mouse in his Have-A-Heart, he painted the mouse's toenails with bright red fingernail polish (imagine mice toes peeking through the cage below).
Even when driven miles away, red toed mice would show up again and again in our home, off to the Have-A-Heart.
Wonder what those mice thought about their trips?
This just happened last year, despite my neglect. Beautiful!
My husband watered while I was away.
|Guess who I discovered in the shower one early morning!?|
We saw wee bits of nature while at my parents home in West Virginia.
It's not a stretch to see where ideas come from.
