Inspiration from the garden

This month we moved into a house that once had fabulous gardens, but they have been neglected for several years. As my husband and I labor to bring the yard back into order, the flowers are a constant source of inspiration to me. I find myself wanting to paint the flowers for the first time ever. And the vintage frames I had at the back of the closet are suddenly just right.
