The quince in my garden is in full bloom .... and on one side of the house, the quince is this wonderful peachy-pink; across the drive, the other quince is a magenta-pink -- wonderful eye-candy!
I tried to sketch this shrub plein air on Sunday; but it turned out too poor to post! LOL So I thought I'd give it another attempt ...
Temps didn't plummet as cold as predicted last night; so our flowers look like they survived the worst of it. Time now to turn our attention to the garden and putting in some of the plants our students have been growing.
I've created a power-point presentation for 'small space gardening' for our Arboretum web viewers:
scroll a bit toward the middle of the page. I used my own gardens for this presentation ... enjoy it! We'll be using this for the school's earthday festival at the end of the month.
I do hope to get outdoors this weekend for some gardening and another plein air attempt. Weather should be much warmer than today!
