Foxglove Lane Cottage Garden by Floral Artist Nancy Medina

Foxglove Lane Cottage Garden is the newest painting in Flower Mound Studio, and is based on the gardens of Coronado Island, California. We toured this garden during my class there near San Diego a few weeks ago, and even though the air was chilly, the flowers were still in bloom on the rose arbor above. We were fortunate to bump into Juan Flores, the architect of Coronado flower gardens, and multiple blue ribbon award winner for the Coronado Flower Show. Juan loves to share his tips for growing the best flowers year round. Juan told us that he sometimes cannot sleep at night, he is so excited about his gardens, planning what he will plant and what colors he will grow in the coming season. Thanks so much Juan, for your generosity and your vision, you are truly an artist!

I keep going back to look at that beautiful light and the gorgeous blue/green of that tree on the upper right side of the canvas. Just stunning, Nancy. Oh to have a home surrounded by flowers!
