A walkway and a fence add structure to a wispy corner garden in summer blooms.
In Deerfield, Massachusetts, I stumbled upon this pretty little corner garden in the historic district.
The scene drew me in with it’s angles and shapes, counter balanced by the wispy flowers.
Another combination of nature and man-made structures that blend well together.
A pair of wrought iron chairs await you in a peaceful little garden, watched over by a quaint birdhouse.
A well-tended corner garden, with a pair of wrought iron chairs beckoning you to sit for a spell.
Stepping stones guide your path in through the greenery.
A quaint birdhouse overlooks the sitting area. The way the chairs are stationed in the garden, it looks to me like the people who would occupy the chairs are on display for the birds in the birdhouse, rather than the other way around! I like that thought.
Closeup details of remarkable blue flowers with interesting petals and tendrils.
Blue flowers gathered in a trio.
I saw these beauties one day, and they just caught my attention. They really were a most interesting blue color, and the shapes of their petals and tendrils were amazing.
I stayed pretty true-to-life on this painting, because there was no need to improve on what Nature had already made.
I don’t know what kind of flower they are, I will have to do some research, or perhaps one of you out there would fill me in?
A sweet birdhouse surrounded by pink roses.
A sweet little birdhouse on a white picket fence, surrounded by pretty pink roses.
I wonder if the birds can smell the sweet scent of the flowers inside their home?
I wonder, too, if the thorns of the rosebush help keep predators away. I hope so.
Red horse barn with horses gathered for conversation.
A barnyard scene of horses gathered together in what appears to be a “coffee klatch”.
A bright red horse barn, with green trees beyond it, and an intimate group of horses hanging out together just called to be painted.
I love the over-the-shoulder look of the horse closest to us, and the swishing tail.
