Hi there, how are you?
I went to the zoo this week and spent the time fascinated by the plants. We saw lots of animals but at this time of year there are some very beautiful plants in the gardens dotted around the zoo too.
One little garden is full of ferns, grasses and pitcher plants. I’d seen them last year and assumed they would change the plants for something different once the summer was finished but no, they seem to be quite hardy and survived the winter unscathed.
The flowers are very strange. The petals hang down over a kind of little platform in the centre of the flower. There are a few different species; some have green flowers and others red.
They’re in a long raised bed so I sat on the wall next too the plants and drew them. Most people are looking at the red pandas in that part of the zoo (I had seen the pandas first) so it’s reasonably quiet.
I drew them from different angles, each pitcher along with its corresponding flower and spent a very enjoyable time in the sunshine.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
