Art in the Garden - Augusta, KY

This is  my booth at Art in the Garden in Augusta, KY.
I was one of three artists who were lucky enough to actually be in the garden.
The weather was beautiful Saturday, cool, overcast, dry and here I am lucky enough to be in this beautiful garden.

On one side of my booth was this beautiful water garden.
It has several types of plants, two sculpture/fountain pieces, coy and a very tiny with a very big croak frog.  Looking at the beautiful hydrangeas and begonias, listening to the water and a band within 30 feet made for a peaceful serene day.

Art in the Garden had a large variety of artisans this year.  
Alpaca weaving
Great Food
Just couldn't get much better.

here's one view of the water garden.
The croakin frog can't be seen, but it was a tiny little frog sitting on one of the water lily pads.

Behind me and to one side were these beautiful hydrangea bushes.
They have all three colors on each bush and then there were two bushes that were completely blue.

This is the view I had as I looked out on Riverside Drive.
There were 75 artists there and they had a fabulous view of the river with ferry crossing every few minutes.  

This is the Lance Bates home.
He actually owns the garden I was in.
It used to be a city garden, but he bought it when he bought the house and lovingly cares for both.
Pictures do not do it justice.
He opens his home for tours as well as the garden.
It is quite the sight.

Thanks Lance
Thanks Augusta
