Time to Garden

I live in a city. And I really like it! Although I do miss having my own yard, our building has set up an area for us to garden. This is my third year participating. It’s on top of the roof of the parking garage.

My absolute fave flower is a gazania.

Greeting cards!© Mary Tanana 2014I’m going to turn this into a repeat pattern. So much to do!


  1. Nice garden! Your gazanias are beautiful and they remind me of your art! Your drawings are amazing, I can’t wait to see what you do next! (LOL…Google chrome is telling me that gazanias is misspelled and suggesting gassiness instead!)

  2. Mary, I love your garden! I love gardening too but have no garden atm, so miss it. Very therapeutic to be so close to nature and to see the amazing fruits of your labours! You can tell that the flowers inspire your work! You’re so productive!
