Backyard Retreat

Collection by Tim Blackwell • Last updated 2 days ago


My wife does her "painting" with a garden shovel and planting soil...our backyard is her canvas and with each passing year new shades of lavender, pink, blues and bright whites are carefully applied with the care of an artist. She loves to get her hands dirty and spends as much time as she can tending to her plants and shrubs. There is still much to do to compliment her "work in progress"...I look forward to assisting her as needed to turn her vision in to a reality. I am proud of what she has accomplished so far...
