We added a new stone terrace to our yard last summer in time to plant yellow roses and lavendar petunias. The sun dial was our old neighbor's. She spent many happy hours in her garden and wanted us to have this when her health forced her to move. I thought of her as I painted this last October. She has been gone many years now but she still lives in my garden and my heart and now on this canvas. I finished the lovely gilded frame for this piece yesterday. After a light coat of varnish, this painting will also be show ready, if I can part with it.
