A Blog about Finding Inspiration

"We have a wonderful world to be inspired by and each new day is like an adventure into the unknown, where things that require a second glance can be captured in time on a canvas for anyone to enjoy forever." (Louise Corke)

ITS - Bottle Tree 12 '08

Brookgreen Gardens has planted a Bottle Tree.
  "What's that?", you ask.  Its a southern holiday tradition.  Find an dead tree, cut  off all the think branches;  then back the  small branches to within 24 " of the trunk,  cover the ends of the branches with colorful bottles.

Brookgreen Gardens Night of a Thousand Candles 12 '08

The Archer
This is mysecond year to attend Brookgreen Gardens' "Night of a Thousand Candles"
Palm Garden Pond by Day
 Every Year, hundreds of volunteers  string lights and light s tragically place thousands of  candles  throughout the the entire garden
Turning an already stunningly beautiful  area
into a fairyland of sparking dancing light
Same Palm Garden Pond by candlelight.
And here's a different view of the Palm Garden with the South Carolina State emblem ( Palmetto Palm and Moon)

Some of the displays are beautiful

And some are a bit spooky

Even if you have visited Brookgreen Gardens in the past, this event is not to be missed.

Fall in the Low Country 12 '08

I am really surprised at how much fall color we get in the Low Country.
Coming from a part of the world where we get none
this is truly a treat
My artwork has become so m uch more colorful since moving to the East Coast
