I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth

The Women that live in my Garden

This is what they have to say....
" I am tired of the heat today. I'm glad I am planted with ivy. It's cooler under it's shade."

"I felt like I was lying on a beach all day today. Then someone splashed water on my face this evening and my complexion has survived another summer day."

"I live under three bushes and  the lavender always makes me smile."

"I'm at one with the garden and the sun shines on me all day. I am my artists girlfriend and I'm in love."

"In dwelling, live close to the ground,
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present."
~Tao te Ching~


  1. How neat, I find them interesting.

  2. Maybe I am one of those women- we were in Algodones for dental work today & it was hotter than heck! Your garden looks cool & refreshing. Thank God for air conditioning............

  3. Such a group of lovely companions. Very composed and elegant.

    I like the quote, too :)

  4. Very interesting post. Lovely ladies in your garden. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  5. Wonderful, poetic post. So glad Sophia's sculpture is quite at home in the lavender. What a mysterious smile she has, no?

    love you,

  6. I agree with you. There is something mysterious about her smile....and I think it changes with the seasons.

  7. Neat imagination!

    Take care-

  8. I found your blog while reading over at Nina's. I guess we have something in common: we both live in the Foothills. I'm not sure where you are but I am between Auburn and Placerville. Not as many acres as you; only 8.5 but at the end of a road like you. Nice to have found you. Have you ever been to the IKEA in West Sac? One of my favorite places.

  9. Dear you make those faces? Nice to have some thing different in the garden.

  10. Very beautiful!!! Did you make those or buy them?
