Bronte's Garden...

A little background music... please click the play button and continue...

For those of you ... me included... experiencing stay-in-doors weather... I thought I would bring you to an amazing indoor garden... the NYC apartment of a woman named Bronte...

This is Bronte... does she look familiar... yes... this is the set of Green Card...

Her garden extends outdoors to a rooftop garden...I thought with such dreary weather Bronte could use a dress like this to brighten her day while gardening... watering... of course she has practical garden boots... Such a lovely greenhouse... perfect for dining...
Won't you join me... a little red wine... mixed field greens with warm fried goat cheese and a lovely champagne vinaigrette... crusty French baguette... along with an apple tartlette for dessert...Stay as long as you like enjoying the gardens... the wine (yes... I have a few bottles)... and the sounds of Enya (from the movie soundtrack)... BUT... you must promise to pop over and visit Beverly of How Sweet the Sound to see what all the PINK girls are up to on this PINK Saturday!


Paintings in this post are for sale... and they are also available as prints and frameable notecards.

Don't Forget to come shop at "Fifiby's Art Auction" on Tuesday... Flower themed artwork will be up for auction... grab your number paddles... I've got my gavel!

Oh...I ALWAYS think back to that garden. I think that is why I loved that movie.(That, and I used to have people stop me on the street asking if I was Andie Macdowell).

Thanks for the beautiful reminder...and I love your paintings! Going to go get the one you sent us framed today..I'll send you a pic when it is done!

It is snowing like crazy right now and only 17 degrees! This is a PERFECT way to get away and into the garden. I hope you don't mind, but I featured one of your paintings from today's blog over on my blog for Pink Saturday! Pop on over if you get a chance! I LOVE the painting!

I adore the indoor fountain! There is a land mark mansion in our area Stan Hewett Hall that has a garden room with a similar fountain..

Happy Saturday!

Positively gorgeous way to start the weekend - thanks for reminding us about this amazing garden dear Fifi! It's such an oasis of calm & contentment & then's Gerard D. (back in his prime before the recent bouhaha where the paparazzi managed to snap him sans swimming trunks, not his finest moment!).
