Wildflowers In Winter #6

While I was sick I missed week 5 of Wildflower Morning's Wildflowers in Winter which was wildflowers/flowers stitched up in some textile art form. Most of my special linens and things are in storage due to space restrictions here, so I probably won't catch up on it but I have had fun looking at the other participants' blog entries.

This week the category is wildflowers in art. I have had in my mind to share this drawing with you. It's one that my husband made in Mendocino, California when I was pregnant with my son in June 2001. We were there for my 35th birthday. On a corner lot there was a beautiful and eclectic garden planted and maintained by a ceramic shop. Sadly when we were there in 2006, the shop was gone and no garden.



I kept a copy of the drawing in my scrapbook from the trip. The photos on the corners show what he was drawing.


This is the full scrapbook layout featuring some of the different flowers from the garden. I sure enjoyed it while it was there and it gave me inspiration for my future garden! :o)

What a beautiful drawing. I like how you accented it with the photos. It does look like your hubby would do wonderful with watercolored florals. Time is probably the issue. Right? Sorry you were sick.
