Hi there, how are you?
I planted loads of wild flowers in the garden this year, they didn’t grow, except for one small pot. It’s doing quite well though. There are poppies and some yellow ones that didn’t last very long but were very pretty, also something with lots of little clusters of white lowers. (My extensive knowledge of flower names hehe.)
They were hanging on the side of the pot and I liked the straggly shapes of the stalks with the bottom flower hanging down over the side so I sat in the garden in-between rail showers and drew a little sketch.
Both of these sketches were drawn with a fountain pen and I was worried the ink would smudge all over the place so I kept the watercolour away from the edges as much as possible.
In the car park near the supermarket I spotted some honesty. I love the papery seed pods of honesty; I took a small stalk and brought it home. Don’t worry it has many seeds to reproduce itself and make new plants next year and I’m thinking since growing flowers is not my thing maybe I’ll plant some weeds. Hopefully the slugs won’t find them so tasty!
I took a few pictures and realised they are so colourful, not just brown but yellows, reds, greys and greens.
My little sketch doesn’t really do it justice but I have it in a jar on the windowsill so I’ll have another go and maybe see if I can do a little watercolour.
There’s always beauty to be found when you least expect it.
Thanks for stopping by today. Till next time, have fun x
