Beside the studio door


Now that spring has really arrived, I'm having trouble even getting from the back door to the studio without stopping with my sketchbook. The inspiration is so tempting.


The French doors near the press in the studio open to the cherry tree, where we will be snacking this summer on the ruby fruits. 


This year the blossoms are stunning...




The cherry blossoms aren't the only wonders that draw my imagination and my eyes.


Along the fence, under the apple trees and firs, woodland beauties crowd together...


and in the center of the garden, the raised beds are sprouting heirloom vegetables and herbs,
some with names to make you grin... Grandma Einspahr's dill, Speckled Brown Trout lettuce...


and just to the left of the studio door, between the ferns and the Colette roses that will bloom in June, a patch of brilliant red tulips blowing in the sunny breeze.

Consider this your invitation to tea in the garden beside the studio.

Hi Sharyn - I'm catching up this morning on what everyone's been doing. Beautiful garden shots! Your studio opens to the white blossoms of your cherry tree and mine to the white blossoms of the Dogwood trees. Don't you just love to see the beauty each day? Hey, sharing a nice find that you'll appreciate on Tuesday, come by.
