Happy Fall

Welcome. I am so happy you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and have a cup of tea and relax while I share with you the inspirations for my art. As much as I love Summer I really look forward to Fall and the beautiful bright colors of the new season and Fall flowers. There is so much to enjoy. What about you? Is there something special about the season that you love?

I have been on little blog break getting ready getting things in order in my garden.

Bentley my Studio Assistant has been out in the garden looking (sniffing) the new fall plants and looking for inspiration for me to paint!!!

I stopped by our local Garden shop, Roger's Gardens,www.rogersgardens.com, to pick up some Marigold plants and thought you would enjoy a few shots of this beautiful garden shop.

I picked up some falls leaves to decorate my front door with and pots of Marigolds. Roger's always has a wonderful special on small pots of seasonal flowers for $1.00 a pot - the best price in town. I picked up lots of pots of them for garden.

I filled my little vintage wagon with pumpkins and planted the Marigolds.

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1

The red bicycle, Mums and pumpkins looked like they would be the perfect inspirations for
a new Fall welcome sign.

The completed Welcome sign.

Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails and those of y0u who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special. I have had many requests to revisit my blog post a few years ago on how to paint a scarecrow WELCOME sign for fall. Next week I will share with you some scarecrow inspirations and we will paint together.

Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
