Are you addicted to seed catalogues? Do you know the meaning of the words horticulture, propagation, and heirloom variety ? Do your neighbors avoid eye contact during zucchini season? Then chances are you are a Garden Goddess and this gardening apron is just for you!

Great in the garden or kitchen , this mid-length apron features my watercolor painting of a trio of pretty pink tulips. The apron provides great coverage to help keep spills and splatters off your clothes and makes a great gift for green thumbs or gourmets. Ties at neck and waist. Two center-stitched bottom compartment pouches for keeping tools and recipes handy. 35% Cotton / 65% polyester blend, twill fabric. Machine washable and guaranteed.

This design is also featured on other great gift items including tote bags, mugs, note cards and t-shirts at my online gift shop: www.CafePress/SusanFayeNature. For a direct link to the apron, click here: Garden Goddess Apron.

Thanks for visiting, and happy gardening!

Featured Photo...ROSE BEE

This past week my friend Mary and I visited the Portland International Rose Test Garden for the first time. It was glorious. The roses were all still in full bloom and the early morning sunshine made all of the blossoms glow with delicate beauty.

And talk about aromatherapy! The exotic scents wafting through the air were a delight for us and our bee friends as we flitted from flower to flower to sample the sweetness that each blossom had to offer.

To find out more about this beautiful rose garden (admission is free!) visit Portland Rose Garden.

Look for some rose paintings somewhere down the road...I took over 100 reference photos for future watercolor paintings!
