Peacock Manor Is A Happy House

We spend lots of time in the garden.  Sometimes I can't believe I know how to do this.  This garden is alot of work but worth it for all the flowers.  I cut everything back myself in the fall and plant more dahlia's and Zinnias in the spring.  This summer all my rose bushes got rosettes disease and I had to chop them all down.  I am feeling pretty hardy.  I replaced the roses with lilac bushes, a beautiful blue rose of sharon and three grape vines.  Grapes do really well here.  And the squirrels let me have some.


My kitchen backsplash behind the oven took some time to come together.  I put random multi colored Victorian fireplace tiles around an old delft tile.  Then put a border of delft tiles around everything.  These tiles are from the seventeenth century.  They are all flowers.  I collected them for my future garden.  And here we are!

Here is a church window that is featured in my studio.  My studio is a separate building in the back.
