The sun sets on another year of GardenFest planning. The Lewiston GardenFest was a great success.
I was at the last meeting of the year for the Lewiston GardenFest committee at this location in the photos. One of our members has a summer lake home along Lake Ontario.
After a very successful event this year, it was decided to have our 10th Annual Lewiston GardenFest in 2015. It is a lot of work planning and putting on this event, but it is also a lot of fun.
I was wondering if any gardeners out there are involved in event planning like this? Are you members of the Master Gardeners or local garden clubs? Do you volunteer at your city’s botanical gardens? Do you work in design, landscaping or horticulture?
I don’t always talk about things I do garden related, but was curious if others do activities other than just their own gardens. I do many of these things and working with others is far more rewarding than working solo in my own garden. I don’t think I would find continued gratification and interest without all these other activities. Variety is the spice of life they say and I fully believe that saying. Inspiration comes from new and exciting experiences.
One of the projects I did to end the event was to produce thank you cards for the open garden participants. The women on the committee never saw the cards before they were sent out and asked if I could post them so they could see. Also, the homeowners could see the cards of the other participants.
So here is a slide show of the 5 x 7.5 inch watercolor renditions of the 19 properties and gardens. I did these similar to other art I have shown on this blog. This link shows backyard birds. Other paintings I have done are from scratch. Not Lying, the Digital Lion Painting is Real. Also my favorite, Digital painting Process – Red-Tailed Hawk.
The Train Garden Containers is up on Thursday. I had to revise the schedule to get this post in for my Garden Club friends. I hope garden readers found it interesting. On Nature and Wildlife Pics, a pond with pink lotus that is just beautiful along with the GARDEN where it is located.
