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.)
Our honeysuckle vine is starting to bloom. The bees are already busy.
