Back Garden

This is the back garden gate of the main ranch house at Triangle L Ranch and B&B in Oracle, Az.  When the ranch was homesteaded in the 1890's, or when it became a guest ranch in the 1920's, there may have been both a front formal garden as well as a back vegetable garden.

One of the things that struck me so funny when I lived in Tucson were the green painted yards. I'd never seen such a thing before! I mention it because I am so surprised to hear of gardens down there! This is so soft and beautiful; hints of lazy hazy summer days gone by. Beautiful, Pam!

Sherry, Thank you! You're right! There weren't our typical northern gardens behind these gates, but you could tell that these were garden areas; desert gardens.

Thank you Carol. A great thing about traveling is that you paint a different environment.

Catherine, Thank you!

Thank you very much Crystal!

I have to say I really like the decision you made to add the touch of blue sky, without it this would seem heavy. Very nice!
