Illustration Friday- Cultivate


I have always wanted my own garden. We can’t keep veggies in stock at our house so having some at arms reach would be stellar. But I wouldn’t stop there folks. Oh no! With my love for cooking a girl NEEDS an herb garden jam packed with all of the best (and heavy on the rosemary, you can never have too much Rosemary)! So, if I want all of that what’s holding me back, right? Well, it’s the little detail that I HATE gardening! Really, I blame my mom for this since she is Green Thumb extraordinaire and had my sister and I help her with her craft by pulling weeds. For a Tom-boy like myself, I didn’t mind getting dirty or that I was poked and prodded by thorns and what-not. What bothered me was that one frog who not only surprised me but jumped outright on the only person in the world terrified of frogs. Since then, I have been traumatized and any weeding I do is full with over-reactions of any critter I come across. Yes, I do think THAT frog and his buddies are secretly plotting an ambush reunion and because of that, refuse to give them THAT satisfaction. After typing about it I think that I need to first grow a money tree, THAN hire a gardener AND landscapers so I can have my cake and eat it too (without frogs). Sometimes, I think I may be a freaking genius! :)

    I love this picture. I have been trying to decide if I want to garden this year…I have had patio gardens, but maybe a real raised bed…and I am a city girl…so this was perfect…I would love this picture to be the gate! Thanks so much for sharing your art…you are so very gifted!

    Another fine example of your extraordinary talent! It was very creative of you to make this an urban garden (the city backdrop is great). Well done!

  3. Nice! Frogs/toads are good in the garden because they eat bugs. I like anything that eats bugs 🙂
