Art in the Gardener - Part 2

More Artists that are also Gardeners!

This photo of strophanthus was taken by Rachel at the Blog Wisteria and Cow Parsley. Rachel is a spectacular photographer and gardener.

I especially love this photograph that Rachel took. I imagine myself living up there in the tree tops.

Flowerlady, at Flower Lady's Musings, is also a creative type. She embroiders and beads these magnificent pictures.

You can learn about gardening and art on Flower Lady's blog (above). She's also a pretty sharp photographer, as noted by the photos she takes for her blog.

Lynn Galloway isn't a blogger, but she is definately an artist and a gardener. For several years she designed and implemented beautiful gardens around the Apple Tree Resort near Yosemite. Lately she has been gardening at Yosemite National Park during the summer and doing her artwork during the winter.

Lynn is accomplished at many differant types of art - from painting to sculpting to metalwork.

Rowan, at Circle Of The Year, is good with needles - as in embroidery and knitting. Here is a baby sweater she knitted...

...and a sampler she cross-stitched.

All photos are courtesy of the artists mentioned below them.
If you are an artist and a gardener, please leave a comment. We just might have to do a "Art in the Gardener 3!

What a great post! It is true that so many artist are gardeners and so many gardeners are artist... sometimes one comes before the other but they often merge! ;>)

I am so admiring of all these artistic bloggers! My only skill, alas, lies in words and photos, but I especially love to see garden-themed art, and I have a fair bit indoors and out.

Oh, Rowans's baby sweater is just scrumptious!
