When my beloved friend moved from her house to a high rise apartment, I believe that she grieved for her garden. So I created this piece for her, and framed it as a window for the wall in her new home.
The birds are all prevalent, if not native to Florida: kingfisher, crane and egret. But it is the jacaranda tree that always enthralled me every spring in St. Petersburg. I was privileged to examine jacaranda blossoms up close, when I traveled to L. A. for my husband’s reunion at Cal Tech. The blossoms are so delicate, but imagine an effusion of them floating among stately trees, framed by sun-kissed sky!
