Shooting Star Wildflower Watercolour Painting | Whims And Fancies

 

 

Welcome to this month’s Wandering Camera!  A couple of days ago I was plopped on the sofa, balancing my sketchbook, a tiny jar of water, palette, paint and brush on a little board.  While looking out toward the blooming flowers in our modest little flower garden, I was doing a practice sketch of a Shooting Star.  That set the stage for today’s Wandering Camera.

 

There is an easy mountain trail about a half hour’s drive away from our home.  I love to spot various wildflowers along that trail and photograph them.

As I was taking the photos, I commented on how some of them are growing like weeds.  My husband laughed and pointed out that wildflowers are weeds! 

Weeds are a gardener’s bane, specially the horrible kinds that grow in the flowerbeds.  However, I do voluntarily grow a few wildflower “weeds” in my garden.   Many Thanks to my friend Mary for sharing her Larkspur seeds with me so readily.

 

I just realised that this post marks a whole year of Wandering Camera.  Last year Wandering Camera Revival started with my sharing photos of these Larkspurs from my garden –
