This post is not about gardens but it is about an amazing young individual who brought "art to the world in every way possible"...

Zina Lahr left us too soon. I hope you take time to watch this short video. It is her legacy and it will inspire you.  Zina was full of wonder and shared her joy in the best way she knew how.

Btw, creating a garden is another way to share that wonder. Click on the link below to see a beautiful obit by Grayson Schaffer and a joyful video that Zina made...


  1. Thanks for posting this about Zina. It's a sad thing to lose someone so young. It seems the world has lost a great artist.

    1. I agree. Perhaps this video will inspire some to stay creative...

  2. I watched this video today and wow what a pure spirit this young lady was, and talented in so many ways. That furry tarantula, birds made of paper, her lighted umbrella. How sad for the world to lose her.

    1. she was a beautiful artistic being - I love that umbrella!
