Don & Diane's Garden

It is always fun to paint at Don and Diane's because you just don't know what new things will be going on in their garden. 
For the last 3 years or so my friend Julie and I have been painting for this couple as they restore and renovate a house from the early 1800's.The great bonus in all this is that they have a garden they have worked on for years, that is so beautiful and well thought out and I love just working in the midst of all that splendor. 
I decided to share some photos of their work in the coming months so others can enjoy what they have done.
They have a fabulous collection of lilies that they add to whenever they visit Ohio where Don's mom lives. There was a farm there that was devoted to lilies and they have gotten a number of the lilies in their garden from this source. Here are just a few, enjoy and have a wonderful flower filled weekend!     


  1. I never particularly liked day lilies. But this year, one of them grew in my garden. I have no idea where it came from as I didn't plant it. But I did find it to be very beautiful. From now on, I love day lilies. The ones you photographed are very pretty.
    Have a great weekend!
