stars from the garden

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

during the summer months, i love to look up at the sky in the evening from my garden. i love to focus on the stars and look at the moon from my yard. this is something i have enjoyed for my entire lifetime. when i studied impressionist artists beginning in high school, i learned about van gogh.  both the ocean and the sky have been painted by vincent van gogh.  his interpretation of the movement of the water and the clouds is nothing less than beautiful.


the color choices and the thick texture of the paint on the canvas conveys so much of the depth of both the ocean and the sky.  every time i look into the summer sky filled with stars, i think of those i love and those loved ones in my life who have passed on.

during the winter months, i have to admit that i don’t spend much time outside looking at the stars, as the weather in Michigan encourages me to stay indoors.  but, i have found a way to connect to the stars in an even more personal way no matter what time of year.

through the name a star program, you can personally name a constellation in the sky for the person you love or have loved.  this program sends the gift recipient a star certificate with the latitude and longitude co-ordinates, as well as a way to track the star on google earth by a computer screen.
