Yesterday was Earth Day, and we celebrated by planting the blueberry bushes we brought home from the sale, flowers, herbs and vegetables ... I even managed to get some 'round-up' on those weeds taking over the raspberry beds and gravel paths.
Down the street from our home is a small field that caught my eye with its masses of 'bluets' (Houstonia caerulea (Hedyotis caerulea) -- see (http://www.ct-botanical-society.org/galleries/houstoniacaer.html). They so reminded me of all the bluebell paintings at EDM and especially Julie's (http://onemilefromhome.blogspot.com/) that I wanted to capture the small patches of them.
I'm still working on my landscape sketches (and the trees I love!!)... and need a ton more practice ... but they're FUN!
