Ponies in the Garden

My newest Painted Ponies have arrived and they look wonderful. I am amazed that they can take my original art and reproduce it into thousands of figurines. Still a bit strange to see my name on the bottom!
Here is The Unicorn's Garden in my garden. This one means a lot to me. It was the first Pony I painted that I had a really hard time parting with (back in 2007). I love medieval art, unicorn lore and everything to do with gardening.

I also had a Pony collector fall in love with Sakura and he wanted his own Pony similar to the first I created.
I love how Sakura II looks on the rearing Pony form. Part of the proceeds from the 2nd cherry blossom Pony will also be donated to aid Japan.

We have a lot of beautiful azaleas here planted by the original owners.
This crimson red one behind the house is my favorite!

Love this Lunaria that grows wild in our yard.

This is the most amazing tulip growing in my garden and I have no recollection of planting it!

My neighbor's yard is nothing but dandelion seeds.
Hope the wind doesn't blow them over here.

Pumpkin in the neighbor's jungle.

Bye, bye!

Ha! A squirrel probably dug up that tulip bulb from someone else's yard, and buried it in your yard. It's a lovely bloom! Jennifer, your Ponies are so amazing; beautiful and poignant. It is such a pleasure for me to visit your blog and see your wonderful art.

I thought your Sakura design was stunning and it's nice to see you doing a similar one. Love that frilly tulip!

The ponies look fabulous, Jen. What beauty you have coming up in your yard. Our azaleas have just popped up - and I spy some Lily of the Valley finally blooming, too. Plus, we're going to have a nice crop of strawberries this year...yum! Happy Mother's Day weekend to you! Theresa
