"Hanging Gardens of Babylon"

Garden, Fini


That's what kateslover called our gutters when he noticed them...happily, that was AFTER I sketched them! I got a bit carried away--first I was taken by the sun on these tiny sprouts, then added the seeds, then had to play with the text and the larger maple sprout...


Journal page

As always, when I'm not absolutely sure of my ID, I go to my dozens of field guides, so I know these were slippery elm and silver maple seeds--not surprising since those two trees have turned my back garden into a jungle...

I pulled a muscle in my arm so typing much seems to really hurt--happily, painting doesn't!

This makes your garden look lovely. Plus, roof gardening is so 'green', no pun intended. This post is inspiring me to check out the painting potential of my drains too! Thank you, Ambal.

Re: the garden
