Garden Harmony – Watercolor

“Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different.”
– Katherine Mansfield

Garden Harmony – Watercolor

I wish I had the time or the inclination to garden.  I used to do great in the spring, only to be burned out on it by the time the 90 degree temperatures rolled around.  I quit trying.  🙂

About Katherine Mansfield

Katherine Mansfield was the pen name of short story writer Katherine Beauchamp, who is best known for her collection The Garden Party. Born in New Zealand in 1888, she moved to England as a young woman and became friends with writers such as Virginia Woolf and D.H. Lawrence. Her writing style was influenced by Anton Chekhov; like him, she focused on intimate moments that revealed character. She in turn influenced a generation of short story writers. She died in 1923 of tuberculosis.

    This is a great way to have a garden but I bet you couldn’t eat the tomatoes! I start the year great but I hate the super hot and humid Indiana summers. I always have to garden in the early morning.

    Absolutely gorgeous. I want to be there, Beth!

    I have the same feeling about gardening. I would always burn out, so I have things that come up each year and I try to keep weeds out of the beds and lawn and keep the lawn mowed.
