A Mid-Summer's Dream by Pat Yager

Currently unavailable for purchase



We added this English style conservatory to our home here in the U.S.A. seven years ago and what a gift it has been! Rain or shine, we can so fully appreciate the beauty God has given us in the surrounding cathedral of towering fir trees, and, in the warmer months, the radiant colors of the garden flowers.

Besides photographing things I find beautiful, I love to paint in watercolor! It can be loads of fun, creating its own beautiful color combinations as they run together on the paper, or it can be surprisingly independent, doing “its own thing” where you pretty much have to give up control – one never knows! That’s all just part of the fun!

    What a beautiful and peaceful place. Is this where you live?

  • Cheryl, I just replied to you, but wrote in the wrong box, so it probably didn’t trigger RB to tell you I’d written. Hopefully you can find it close by! I must tell you, also, that we feel very privileged to be able to live here, it’s not something we ever take for granted. We feel it truly is a gift from above.

  • It is indeed peaceful here, Cheryl. We are surrounded by very tall fir trees, so it’s like living in the middle of a forest. But, as each year the trees grow taller, less and less light comes into our home. So that fact, plus the seven to eight months a year here of gray clouds and rain, finally persuaded us to add the conservatory three years ago. And what a difference it’s made in our lives! It lets in so much more light to the rest of the house, I can overwinter many colorful plants, and it’s such a warm and fuzzy feeling being able to look straight up at the pouring down rain, and know it can’t touch me. I wish we had done this years ago.

    Pat, I cant believe that is your garden it looks like a little piece of heaven you must be so proud! thank you for sharing it! :)))

  • Hi, Jacky — And I’ve got you and the English Garden’s website to thank for introducing me to Redbubble — again, thank you. Yes, my husband and I DO think of it as a little piece of heaven, or at least with the tall trees all around, as sort of a cathedral. It is so worshipful to be able to be quiet and simply enjoy the beauty that is here. (If I could just get that gardener* to work a little faster!) *me :))

    What a fabulous garden – so beautiful and tranquil – you obviously put in a lot of time Pat! x

  • Hi, Angela — A happy garden does take time — It’s a lot like painting, but with a lot more variables. I’ve tried to copy the cottage garden style out in the small beds, mostly in pinks and blues, with whites to show the other colors off a bit. But up near our gray house, I usually have lots of red geraniums to brighten up the scene a bit. And I’ve finally gotten smarter, and have put in more perennials to come back on their own each year. Thanks for your kind comment!
