Jennifer Mennuti, of Botanical Visions recently blogged about my art in a very inspiring post about the power plants have to inspire us and affect change for the good, in our world. You can read her entire post here.
Which reminds me of my father. About fifteen years ago, before his death, he came to visit with a small bag full of these weed-like plants. "Plant these" , he said. "They just sprouted all over my yard and are very pretty when they bloom". And of course, I did. Every day when I see a buttercup in my garden, or see my little painting of a Buttercup, "Papi" speaks to me...
I've subscribed and spent quite a while reading Jennifer's blog since she has so many interesting posts about plants and landscaping in South Florida. Goodness knows, although I love plants, I don't have as green a thumb as I could have! And she offers quite an interesting way of attaching orchids and bromeliads to trees. I am going to try that! Please check out her very interesting blog here.
Thanks for stopping by today!
