About Me

I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Gardens at Village Green Resort

This is a continuation of where I left off on my last post. If you have not read it, go here

To our delight, the resort had lovely gardens. Turns out that the same company, Moonstone, has a resort at the Oregon Garden. They bought this resort and renovated what had become very outdated and run down, to a beautiful and inviting destination.
We had a very lovely room that included a fireplace (which would be quite cozy in the winter) and a lovely little private patio which we enjoyed so much both for morning coffee and a glass of evening wine.

The second night after dinner we decided to meander the many trails though out the gardens. I will bet June and July were even more spectacular since that really is the peak here in Oregon. None the less, I did find some really cool garden whmsey scattered about. Of course snapping a few photos for future garden inspiration for myself! 

above and below, these were hanging on the side of a building, a unique idea. I think I would put a potted trailing plant on the chair.
The old wagon, I think I might paint that just for more contrast
