|Heart of the Garden|
It's time for the July Art Bead Scene challenge !
This month's painting is Morning in the Garden at Vaucresson,
by Edouard Vuillard . How perfect for Summer !!!
The gardens around me are in full bloom !!!
I think it's obvious I love flowers and plants !
I love every sort of garden . I love everything from the spare beauty of a Zen garden to the overgrown medley of a wild meadow. My own little gardens are something in between .
They are disorderly enough to remind me of wild woodland glens.
But ,they are orderly enough to make weeding and tending the plants possible .
Unless your goal is to create wild life habitat ,
your garden probably has a practical side to it's design.
If you have enough free time maybe you have an elaborate formal garden with all types of wonderful plants.
If you have little time ,you might have just a few easy to care for favorites.Living gardens by necessity , balance the pretty with the practical.
Our Bead garden designs allow us more freedom !
When I saw this month's painting I knew I could design my garden just as I liked .
I decided it would be all about colors in the painting !
I didn't select a just few of the colors.
I used all the the colors I could find !!!
I wanted the feeling of a lush garden ,carefully tended but still a little on the wild side .
A place with colorful flowers blooming in every nook and cranny. Not a sunshine bright garden glowing with primary colors .
But ,a misty morning garden with all the soft shades of Vuillard's painting.
I wanted my design to capture that feeling of a quiet, peaceful morning among the flowers.
My real garden is badly in need of weeding .
It's baking under glaring Summer sun.
But, thanks to ABS, my necklace garden seems to have a cool, serene feeling .
A perfect way for me to add a touch of calm to a busy day !
How does you garden grow ?
this week create a bead garden designed just for you
