MY GARDEN



7.45pm this evening, sitting in the doorway of the studio looking out onto my garden across the deck.

'Like a finely tuned orchestra, my garden plays a never ending concerto . The birds sing unashamedly, calling those they love, while the fish in the pond plop vicariously providing a deep bass.
Machinery long gone from the fields - nature reunites with her rightful territory and one can't help becoming lost in her song!'

Beautiful! I have a butterfly bush that I just planted this year and it's taking off splendidly. Same color, too. This is a wonderful composition.

Anita said...

Thanx Sherie.
Good luck with your shrub, mine attracts so many butterflies and is my most favourite spot to walk past in the garden.

We used to have a big ol' butterfly bush that grew from a teeny, tiny, little sprig. When we moved it was taller than me. We don't have one now...thanks for sharing! Beautiful sketch; and don't those greens just look like fresh makin's for salad?
