NUDE SUNBATHERS enjoy my Dish Garden

My garden is covered with SCAFFOLDS……[building repairs]……..so I planted a “DISH GARDEN”.

 The planter is 30″ diameter…….and 5″ deep.

Midge and Mike are sculpted from poly plastic.

It is a perfect place to enjoy a good read.

There is no fear of “Limes Disease” in this garden paradise.

Dwarf plants cover every inch of my garden.

The SCALE of the garden is 1″ to 12″…….so the watermelon is one inch.

I sculpted the cats from FIMO CLAY.

Tiny Tommie……scultped from FIMO……is 4 inches tall….

and he LOVES WATER MELLON.

FIGS from my TERRACE GARDEN

Every summer I grow FIGS on my terrace………

Today I picked 6 of my FIGS.

Then I arranged the FIGS in a dotty dish………

 

This was my sketch for the FIG layout.

Final sketch with a ball-point pen……..6 FIGS

Chose my color pallet for the FIGS.….31 colors in all……..


This is the final watercolor of my FIGS.

Then I pickled the FIGS.………..and will eat them tomorrow with a pork roast.

[My mother taught me how to pickle fruit when I was 10 years old].

Jane fixed the lunch………..brought the wine………..and CITARELLA provided the cake for Don’s SECOND birthday celebration.

I think he just wanted to get more presents!
