‘What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.’ Ralph Waldo Emerson.

24 Jan

Stories from  my Sketchbook . . . . 

Last weekend I thought it about time I got out into the garden and did a little ‘maintenance’ (other than just the usual mowing of the lawns and sweeping up of the debris of the last storm kind of maintenance) . . .

It wasn’t long before I had begun to wish I had just been content to do the sweeping.  It seems my back garden is a virtual cornucopia of ‘plants whose virtues have not yet been discovered’ . . .

Methinks I might perhaps be out there ‘maintaining’ again next weekend.

Sigh.

    Hard to believe the subject of that gorgeous sketch could be considered undesireable!

      I admit – there was a little ‘artistic licence’ taken here . . . 🙂

    Yep, artist’s privilege I think – I don’t remember dandelions being that colour 🙂
    I really like the sketch though Sal, can almost see those wispy seeds dancing away on the breeze!
    PS – with any luck it will be raining on the weekend and too wet to work outside.
