Hey Beautiful People! I had ‘Garden Song’ by David Mallet running through my head like crazy while drawing this….wanted to post the lyrics to his whole song but no one is quite sure what the lyric’s are! There are sooo many different versions on google it’s exhausting. I have a version in my head running on a loop that I think is Pete Seegar’s…but anyway…talk about planting seeds! Beautiful David Mallet planted this song and it grew gorgeous flowers of all sorts!!! Huge hugs all around!

P.S. Ishita’s is the first comment I read and she said she was going to listen to the song…thought I should post it (had planned to but laziness won the day! 😅) Anyway…YAY! I found the version of Pete Seeger singing it that I’ve known my whole life! And this wonderful video shows the original lyrics written out with the changes Pete made written in red under each line. SO cool! Here it is:

Thank You Ishita for the inspiration! Cheers ALL!

thank you for blog


    1. Cool beans! I love that this made You happy! We did a little happy exchange! 😊 And those are really cool words, aren’t they. Ponder worthy, indeed. I wish I’d written them! 😅 Cheers and Thank You! 😊❤️🤗


  1. You are such a Blessing to us all, Dear Katy! I AM once again impressed with your ability to sense the life essence and express it in your visual art. So much comes together in the combination of this wonderful painting along with the music! I dare not provide my version, for each must see what is theirs to behold. 😊 That is the Magic of the Gift!
    Thank you for sharing! 🙏🏻🌹
    Sending you Angel Hugs 😇💖🤗
    the Sweetest of Blessings🌞 🌈🎶🕊
    and very much Love. 💞

    1. Oh gosh! This is so lovely, Betty! Thank You!!! And I wholeheartedly invite You to all-ways share Your version if You like! It’s so fun to see all the different worlds one piece of art can hold! I like how You phrase it, “…the Magic of the Gift!” That’s so true, isn’t it? I love walking through a museum or gallery with a Dear One and hearing/seeing what touches their heart and how it makes them feel. So different for each of us. Like expressionism of all kinds is a mirror of sorts that opens us a little further when it touches us and we blend with it. You’ve gotten me all philosophical halfway through my first cup of coffee! Rut roh! Look out world! 🤣Sending You Angel Hugs, the Sweetest of Blessings and very much Love right back! 🤗🙏🏼❤️😇🌀☀️🌈

    1. Oh YAY! Thank You, Isabelle! I’m so happy this brought You peace. Me as well. And I must have not watched the whole video because I didn’t see those characters! Going back to watch again as soon as I finish typing this. Thanks for pointing that out! Sending You huge hugs! 🤗❤️😊

          1. No worries, Katy! I haven’t written about it. I think I read this maybe 2-3 years ago.

            Also, I would certainly recommend it but beware this book is heavy and can be emotionally draining.

      1. Whew! I was a bit afraid you’d be upset about my comment. But then I thought that we’re different and we see things differently and in the end my comment was positive. In any case, that would be a cool alien. I see him/her glowing. 🙂

        1. Oh gosh! Not at all!!! You are so sweet. Please know You are free to say anything here and You won’t hurt my feelings! One of my favourite things about art is how truly subjective it is! You could bring 20 different people into a room to see any kind of art or expression and there will be 20 different levels of liking it or not and 20 different interpretations of what was being said/expressed. Your comment gifted me joy, sincerely! And I can’t tell You how many times people will see something in my paintings that I’d never thought or intended and it will spark a whole new painting from me wanting to consciously go wherever they thought I was going in the first place! It’s a huge gift to me that You (and everyone!!!) are here and that You even take the time to express how You feel! So rock on knowing You are truly appreciated and that how You feel/what You see is PERFECT and valid and really cool to hear!!! Sending huge hugs Your way!!! 🤗💕🙏🏼😊🙏🏼

          1. Thank you for saying that. You’re an artist and I’m not. It’s normal to see things differently. Alas, from my experience, not every artist appreciates an input. In any case, if I get inspired by one of your works, I’ll tell you my feelings. 🙂
