As you know, summer is my time for inspirational living rather than spending too much time in the studio. I focus on two things in June: my landscape gardens and the Boundary Waters. I’ll be reporting on the Boundary Waters as well as some upcoming exhibits in July. For now, here are a few things I’m enjoying in the garden:
I have a new little camera for in camp in the Boundary Waters (Nikon L100). So I’m out giving it a whirl now. This is Mary Rose rose from David Austin. It survived my ill-advised burn-off of the big front bed.
Nigella or love-in-a-mist. These, as most of my flowering plants, are almost done already. The seed pods of these plants are fantastic.
I have walking onions only because they are so very weird and architectural.
You know me and milkweed. I’m still interested in their shape in every stage.
