Belated Monday Show & Tell
Make Mine Pink

I'm dealing with computer issues, which prevented me from
posting on Monday, but it looks as if I'll sneak this post in before
losing internet again! Dreaded satellite! It's killing me! Yea!

I've been so busy creating a lamp as a donation for the
"Romantic Homes" book signing, and I haven't seen the light
of day for over a week.. We've had storms to beat the band for
days, so it really didn't matter what my gardens looked like in my
opinion. When my hubby came into my studio this morning and
remarked that I needed to get some fresh air, that the sun was
shining and the flowers on the wisteria would be spent if I didn't
notice them soon, I knew I needed to take a peek. I couldn't believe
how green, lush and beautiful everything looked! I realized the
Purple and White Hesperis were up and in full bloom, and my
Wisteria was covered with Purple clusters.
Where have I been?? In a cave??

I waited until this evening to take photos of my sweeties, knowing how
lush and green everything looks when the sun goes down.
So I decided I would capture my moment and post them tonight. Now,
if I get so busy in the studio, I can at least visit my blog and be
reminded that there is another world out there.

Your garden is amazing and that Wisteria is just so gorgeous! I understand too well being swamped for long periods of time in your studio. So glad you took a break to stop and smell the roses!
Beautiful post!

Oh Michelle,
How lovely those wisterias are. I am amazed at the quality of the gardens I have seen on the blogs. Living in the valley (aka desert) I am starved for lush greenery. Thanks for sharing, I could look at your yard for hours. Sorry you are having internet problems. I hope they get it fixed soooooon. I miss you humor so much when you are not around.

Your garden is a dream. I just love everything I see in all the pictures. When you come back out of your cave again, please show us more. The tile work is amazing and the colors are so vibrant. I love it all.
