I spent most of the day walking the beautiful gardens, and because of the Spring rains I knew the Desert Garden would be especially beautiful. It was a pretty day - quite warm, but not too hot. And, there were flocks of wild parrots throughout the gardens - lots of chatter. I couldn't get any good pictures of the parrots.
The shade gardens were at least 10 degrees cooler than the desert garden.
The bonsais were spectacular in person - made me want to give it a try too.
As a fabric collage artist, I enjoy working with vintage fabrics and mixed media elements to create art quilt collage pieces. Old fabrics, lace, buttons, sewing notions, ephemera and photographs are my favorite mediums to use.

I chose to name my creations Threads In Time by Pallas, not only to reflect the physical threads of the old textiles, but also to reflect the threads in time each piece travels in an imaginary journey. I added my name, Pallas, to personalize each piece that I create.
I live in Kentucky during the Summer and Fall and the rest of the year in California.
