The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

Quilt show in the Garden.


This region is an international community of ex-pats mainly from US and Canada. But many other nationalities are presented as well. I even know one Scottish lady running a boutique hotel in the village. The region is also known as artist and artist “wanabee” colony and many interest groups are demonstrating their skills in little art exhibitions around the town. This is one of them:
Fabric art group call themselves Kindred quilters

The exhibition was held in one of the members garden.
She call their place Casa Phoenix

Just a few images of the pieces they have created:











12. Quilted Jackets



And also some plants in this specific garden

Beautiful African tulip tree (Spathodea campanulata) as a backdrop

Pink Hibiscus


And one for Hywel:

Thank you for your interest.

Very talented , aren't they , Klahanie ?
Are you in Mexico or New Mexico ?
Nice and warm , no doubt , wherever !
Quite chilly here , although the temps aren't too bad , about 12c . It is a damp , penetrating chill .

17 Nov, 2014


We are in Mexico not New Mexico Driad. Same place as last year. 12 deg C is not so cold but I agree the dampness and no sun would make it chilling.
