My grandmother has the best garden ever. She spent many years working for a florist so, she has landscaped her backyard perfectly. She seems to know exactly what plants compliment others and which flowers bloom at the perfect time. When visiting I spend most of my time sititng in a lounge chair on the back deck with my sketchbook. I've come to realize that there is NO greater artist than mother nature herself. She has an upperhand on us all. We spend so much time trying to duplicate her work, but it's useless. Nothing compares.
