Mon Bouquet du Jour

Para usted de mi jardin





From our Garden





Gather a variety, whatever looks interesting.




When working with heavy vegetables and fruit, a little extra support is necessary.




Florist picks with attached wires come in handy.




Florist tubes, filled with water, hold flowers a little longer.




Rub a little olive oil onto eggplants, prevents them from drying out.




Stop by your Florist or craft store for all of the above items; you'll be glad you did when it comes time to design your holiday arrangements.





It only takes a few minutes to put together when you have everything at hand.





Even the lowly turnip.





Our garden is bursting with produce.  In between painting sessions I'm canning whatever is ripe in our garden.





I'm still painting for the "Artist Studio Tour", September 10th.  

Thank you, my dear friends.  I am reading all of your sweet comments.  Please know that I appreciate you more than you will ever know. 

Have a great weekend my dear Blogging Friends.

  3. Again - a very uplifting post, while here, because of the drought, nothing is flowering anymore.
    Your 'still life' with vegetables and fruits is absolutely wonderful and stunning!

  5. Hi, Gina - Every time I see the fruits and vegetables of your garden, I am reminded of a splendid Flemish painting. All we need to complete the picture is a butterfly perched on that eggplant!

  6. Gina, thank you for all these tips for making photos of beautiful, bountiful harvest time look their absolute best.

    Wish I had a garden producing said harvest, but will try to remember your wonderful advice for that future golden garden harvest.

    What a great eye you have!
