Bethabara Gardens


Bethabara Gardens
Originally uploaded by linfrye
I painted this a couple of weeks ago after we returned from the Apple Festival at Bethabara Gardens (site of the earliest Moravian settlement in NC) . The folks at the Historical Park restored the gardens by allowing community members to each have individual plots - and these members have filled each of their spaces with incredible vegetables and flowers. I framed this painting and brought it to the Gallery yesterday.

Great job portraying those little patchwork gardens. I love community plots because of the variety! And congratulations on your gallery show! You well deserve the recognition!
