The Secret Garden

Everybody has a secret and mine is that I don’t like gardening. I don’t like being outside. I don’t like activities out in nature. I don’t even like the bugs and bees, and especially not the spiders that come with anything outdoor related. I’m not a camper, or a hiker, or even a stroller in the world outside my protective walls . . . and I like it that way.

Here’s the thing though, I love all the beauty nature brings. I love the flowers and trees and foliage and even a few bugs. I love the unbelievable colors and textures and shapes in nature. So, my solution is to create my own little world or nature in my own little way.

Here is my version of the cut flowers I just picked outside to put in a vase in my studio. The beauty is they won’t wilt and die, but on the downside they don’t give off a nice aroma either. This is my one sure way of being able to preserve nature.

There is another little secret about this bouquet of flowers. I can’t share the details with you yet, but they are planning to bloom in one of my projects, that will hopefully be out soon. I will let you know when they start sprouting, and where you need to go to get your own fresh bouquet and become the avid gardener that I am. ;)
