This is also when I take my photographs and sketch their gardens for what will become a water color rendering of the garden for the book.
I like the garden as art element - and the link to the culinary art.
Gardens inspire artists of every kind - but I started with the culinary artist, naturally, as they use the bounty of the garden in their artist pursuits.
And like a garden sprite, I got a text from Patty late last night asking to meet next week for lunch. I haven't spoken to Patty in a bit so she must have food and garden karma waving about her, beckoning us back to Long Island and the Hamptons!
“The Hamptons.” Why it’s practically a brand name!
