A Place of Her Own

My neighbor's outbuildings have always fascinated me.  Each one is used for something special.  One is a potting shed with a storage area for handmade holiday decorations, a garage for the car, woodshed (filled with wood for cozy fires in winter), a storage shed and my favorite, her workshop.  Even though the outside of the workshop is filled with flowering trees, vines, and blooms galore; inside the workshop are her well worn tools for the hard, but rewarding work of gardening, woodworking, carving and repairing.

Free to Be

My neighbors yard is filled with flowers.  One whole flower bed is filled with Tiger Lilies that have been allowed to self seed and the bees and hummingbirds are benefiting.  I am so lucky to be able to paint the beauty that is right next door.
