Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul. ~ Luther Burbank
Ahhh, early summer. Those divine days that promise warmth, new vistas to discover, long summer nights by a wood fire, the sounds of water gurgling on a pebbly beach....
But I don't have to leave home to enjoy a summer's day. Here in the city, my yard is a sanctuary. I find pleasure in the pink roses growing so profusely this year on my Grootendorst bushes, my peonies are finally in full glorious bloom, and there is the promise of more to come with my hydrangeas and astilbes.
These flowers in my front yard are so cheerful that I just had to draw them in my sketchbook. I am wishing you, my dear friends, a happy sunshine filled summer.
May your soul be replenished with the colours of nature's beauty and bounty.
