Artjak, i tend to paint any surface that looks boring too! I do love your work.
Thank you all so much. This is what i wanted - contributions to the forum that show how much plant life influences the creative parts of our life. I write poems inspired by my gardening and "walks on the wild side". I should have included poetry writing too - who does not quote a "Host of golden daffodils" whenever they mention Wordsworth? So do not be surprised to see some poetry on this thread. I love the delicacy of Busy-Lizzie's painting.
A deutzia gracilis would be lovely. Flowering now and smells great.
I started a new thread today called "Painting what you've grown".Looking forward to seeing some art work.
I know there are as the thread i started on June1st called Summer has arrived has mention of them. All you need to do is a line a day, Sue. Gardeners have to be observant and that goes for art too.
Celebration in acrylic on my lounge wall - quite a big picture.
May Day in my garden - acrylic.
My gladioli I painted in oils on canvas.
Many of us paint, draw, embroider. dry, make floral arrangements with the plants we grow. Let's share it. Here to start you all of is what an 84 year old is doing with her plants and garden.
John, why not ask the nursery you bought it from - they are hardly likely to have stocked two such similar plants and will have a record of the name.
