Bible Gardens and Pleasing the Eye
I've had various ideas for gardens...recreating my grandmother's flower garden which would include geraniums, sweet Williams, nasturtiums, forget me nots, pansies and the like. Or perhaps, a Bible garden...what flowers grew in Bible times and are mentioned; lilies, crocuses and roses come to mind. Think I will need a bit of research on that one. A friend of mine had a landscape artist come and plan her garden for her. Though beautiful, it quickly became too overwhelming for her to manage on her own and she wound up changing around a lot of the choices to far fewer plants and those that could grow without loads of weeding and care. One aspect of that garden I did admire was waist high beds with strawberry plants which meant no deep bending; that can be so hard on the back at my age.
Almost finished my scarf...hopefully before the snow flies. Added to my granny squares last night and today I'm heading to my sewing machine to put in a couple of hours on some projects I have in the works for quilting. I will share those efforts with you soon.
Hope there is something pleasing to your eye in your day today.
