New Work Getting Underway
If you have a plant bud, berry or seed that I should consider, please send me a photo. I work primarily from actual living specimens, but photos are great inspiration.
Love the way blueberries ripen and show their colors a few at a time, so the artwork can be more interesting than if they all ripened at the same time. That also makes for great additions to cereal over many mornings. I tried growing them in pots on my deck, but it was not successful. The flowers that were on the bushes when I planted them made wonderful berries, but the next crop was frozen out and the plants died out pretty well afterwards. No point trying to plant them in the garden here, we are over run with deer. Or venison on the hoof and I would prefer them.
Thanks for reading,
