We are in the midst of a drought yet again and not many flowers are visible. This bloom is from the spring.
I’m taking an online course on Natural History Illustration. The homework for Week 4 was to illustrate a flower. We have this honeysuckle on our back fence (and it’s blooming!), so I snipped off a piece and used it as my subject. As soon as I submitted this photo for my homework, I noticed I hadn’t listed the measurements or even the color of the leaves. Lesson learned? Maybe.
From Grandmother’s Flower Garden in La Grange, Texas. It’s a wonderful garden and I always roam through it when I visit the Texas Quilt Museum next door to the garden. These caught my eye. (Taken with my smart phone.)
