I have always loved sketching flowers.
While living in the condo,
I used to buy flowers from the supermarket,
but most times the flowers would die
before I got a chance to really sketch or photograph them.
Now that we have a garden,
I don't have an excuse anymore.
The previous owner, an avid gardener, was absolutely right
when she told me that we will have many surprises throughout the year.
I'm continuously amazed and delighted what pops up.
These ranunculus I have planted myself
and it is my first step to finally sketch nature more often.
I have been much inspired by Mary Ann Moss at Dispatch From LA.
