My garden in May

delphiniumfoxglove
My garden is the opposite of a formal garden. The plants that are growing are either volunteers or tough additions. I grow a variety of native plants as well as european immigrants, like my own ancestors. Foxglove has been in my yard for as long as I’ve lived here, and I’ve never planted it. The delphinium is something I planted four years ago. The orange poppies have happily reproduced for at least 20 years. In every season, something else in my yard glows. Birds, bees, and butterflies love this place.

Live Oak above all

liveoakaThere is literally nothing that has as much presence and majesty in northern Florida than the Live Oak trees. In the glittering sunshine they stand tall, with their upper leaves touching the clouds and their limbs an inky black. Surely in the days before air conditioning, sitting under one of these would save your life. I continued to do studies on a tree near where I was staying, this is the most recent. It’s a 5 x 7″ painting and is for sale. $50.00 buys this.
