Walking around Reynolda Gardens was intoxicating! From the roses to the perennials, the trellises to the wee towers, I loved it all!

Here's a bit of a view of a one corner.

Very pretty and inviting. It's making me long for spring already, and we have not even started with winter yet! lol

Lin, you've had some very nice sketches on your Blog lately. Our gardens are fading fast. I'm thinking ahead to planting bulbs & spring flowers.

Lin, I love it and especially your abilty to paint flowers "from a distance." Haven't figured out how to do that yet....

Lin, this is lovely! It makes me long for an afternoon with a good book and curl up in that gazebo for an hour or two. It really is inviting.

What I relly love about your watercolours is the light touch you have with the paint. You really achieve that transparent look. Well done.

This is outstanding, Lin! I love the way you captured the different textures of the flowering shrubs. Just a beautiful view and sketch!!!

The composition on this is wonderful! I agree with all the others, this is a "mood setter." It just calls for a comfy chair, a good book and a cup of tea.

Oh that looks so calm and inviting; great job on the flowers banking the gazebo. Looks like a great place to spend some quiet time
sketching! Love it.

What a dreamy scene. It reminds me of the location of a friend's wedding last summer. Your colors are so fresh!

Delicate and beautiful. You have such a gentle touch with watercolour Lin. This is lovely.
