You Want A Piece Of This?

this cake was desert at a bon voyage party thrown for us last weekend

I mean, would you like to have a piece of of Monkey Grass Hill?

A few weeks ago, blogger and artist PVE e-mailed me this painting she did of my pond. She was inspired by a post I did last year and she captured the details perfectly. I started bawling, as it brought up the emotions of leaving my home and garden that I love. 
My pond is a calming and a central part of my garden and my home.

 When we have parties the kids always like to sit on the edge while they eat.  Everyone loves to feed the fish (even grown ups). The birds, squirrels and even an occasional frog stop by to have a drink. We've had some swimmers (dogs and children). 

And, it's my favorite view while I sip my morning coffee. It's a special place. 

Yesterday I got a this beautiful package in the mail. 
Patricia turned the painting into notecards. They are now available on her etsy shop along with so many other great works of art. You really should check them out. Or have her create something equally as special for you. I'm thrilled that I can take a little piece of my garden with me to London--and now you can have a little piece too. 

Have a great weekend!

You will need only to sit in front of your lovely painting with your morning coffee and drift back to Monkey Grass Hill. So pretty!

I think I like the image with the kids wading in your pond best! All you need are "wellies" and I never intended to make you cry~~
