I was at Selby Gardens today and they're having a Chagall exhibit and all aspects of the garden are being inspired by Chagall. I particularly liked this quote (so did Mom) and thought it might be nice to use in the future.

You could probably Google and find some others. They had several spread throughout the gardens, but I didn't take pics of all of them. His art was definitely highly inspired by nature.

What a great idea for an inspiration, Mellie. I think they could even use your photo as is. It's a gorgeous setting and wonderful saying.

Thanks, Karen! Below is my favorite picture. I think they were trying to recreate the fields of lavender in France, but since this is Florida, they used Salvia. It's right near where the sign is.

Yes, I can make that work. Don't expect to see it for a while though, I have inspirations lined up through May.
