Wonderful Lily in our garden
This is the time of year when I am out in my garden inspecting the progress my plants have made after a long, cold winter. Our new home in the Egypt Hills doesn't have the same square contours as our old home in Brighton which years ago seemed to me to have been built on a mound of old bricks.
Our new home on a hilltop that was once an orchard has terrific soil rather than the clay and bricks we found on Elmwood Avenue. But I did establish a garden many years ago and each spring and summer I might sit outside and paint a watercolor or two. I plan to do that once again where we are now, but I want to see how our new garden grows and what comes into bloom. In my teaching career at Rochester Institute of Technology I always brought my students to the greenhouse in Highland Park to draw and paint plants as part of my course in Zoological and Botanical Art.
