Wayside Plants #2

On my daily walks I am always looking for what I call Wayside Plants. These are the plants that are not intentionally placed, they have placed themselves. They are plants that are usually not welcomed into gardens and yet they persist and survive. I admire their tenacity.

Branches and Blue Sky

After days of grey grey grey I needed to see some blue sky if only in this photograph taken last September in Australia.

Milk Thistle

This is one of my favourite plants, I love thistles and
in this case I also love the latin name... Silybum.

Eggplant Friends

When I positioned these two eggplants to paint it appeared that they
had developed a relationship and I was there to capture the moment.

Wayside Plants #1

A walk along the cliffs in Mendocino, California gathering plants
to draw that evening at the campsite was a perfect day for me.

The Majestic Cardoon

The majestic cardoon, apparently highly invasive, has become unwanted in Argentina, California and Australia. I have always been attracted to the renegade.

Cattle Point Trees

It was very windy on my walk today. These trees are permanently windblown,
exactly how I was feeling.
