Is this not incredibly gorgeous???
For those you of that read along, you know that I belong to a group of volunteer gardeners. It is an interesting group of people who, besides being great gardeners, are full of surprises. This awesome chair is the original design and needlepoint of one of Mary's Gardeners. She created this! I should tell you and it will come as no shock to you that it was a People's Choice Award Winner at a needlepoint show at a major historic site . No kidding!
(Thanks, B for holding up the back of the chair!)
Our artist...she truly is...has many talents. Here's one of her paintings:
A woman of extraordinary talent, she had us over after gardening to a "little" lunch (you can imagine...think Texas and think big...and more importantly, think delicious!!) to see her garden, then arranged a rose garden tour of a nearby neighbor's garden...from there took us to her log cabin lake house to see her garden by the lake...and concluded with another tour of a neighbor at the lake's native plant garden. It was quite a day!
Thank you so much, F! Your gardens are wonderful...and so are you!
