Painting what you've grown

Posted: 13/06/2013 at 22:22

Of course it is suitable, Eddie- true garden art.  I am may even put in some of my poems.  I suggested the thread to show that gardening is not just bunchees of flowers and fruit and veg to eat and a nice place to relax but is a great contributer to the culture of a country too.  I love to watch my logs decaying in the garden.  some of the bracket fungus that grow on them are huge.

Fairygirl, she would do well to try the RHS site.  Tulip bulbs are susceptile to fungus and any left too wet in cold weather.

Bev, those colours are really beautiful.  This paintung of mine is called "After the migraine has gone".  It just seemed like the peace of my waterlilies had calmed my head.

Just ask the nursery for sicilian Garlic, you two as the name is changing.  Summer has indeed arrived when you salivate every time you pass your first peach, like I am doing.  It is a Peregrine peach so gets red all over.

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.
