Inspired by Roadside Daisies
Roadsides, along with hay bales (LOL) always fascinate me -- in fact, watching wildflowers populate those untamed areas are the very thing that got me interested in botany. The places where humans do not cultivate and nature has her way are always filled with such diversity and interest - some of the most fascinating grasses and wildflowers seem to occupy these bits of land.
These days, the 'ditch daisies' are the 'show' along with wild grasses and the leaves of our common daylilies. With our weeklong rain, much of the browns of past vegetation are gone, and are being replaced with more and more green - I chose to use more yellow and brown in this sketch to indicate a brief sunshiney moment between all our bouts of rain.
I'm off to a busy workweek, and a bit more rain.
Hope your day is merry!
