Garden Variety Floral Art / Reverse Painting on Glass
Not only do I love spending my time painting on glass, but I also like to work in my flower beds each year. Now that I am getting older, I have had to cut out a few of the flower gardens, and let them return to lawn. That part was hateful, but necessary in order to keep my back from going into muscle spasms.
But when it’s all said and done, it’s about getting the blooms you enjoy the most. Our driveway is over 100 feet long, and after it was black topped, I decided to have over 12″ on each side full of flowers. I’ll be the first to tell you it’s a lot of work, but so rewarding!
There is still a beautiful old lilac bush where my flower bed on the west side of the property is. And the daffodils still come up around it every year. It’s hard to discourage a daffodil once they get an idea going on. Who would want to anyway? Such pretty blooms!
My husband’s favorites in the flower beds though are the volunteer tomato plants that have come up every year. Useful, too!
