When my children were small my mother, an avid gardener, would let them come with her to her "Secret Garden", which she had terraced out of the hillside in her back yard. There were little paths with flowers on each side and places to just sit and enjoy the view. This is a painting of my own back yard, which has flowers planted in her memory. My little garden statue, tucked away under the large peony blossoms, always makes me think of that special place. Gardens are good for the spirit.
