Nature Journal: Hydrangea Sketch

The hydrangea has begun is flower. This plant was originally from a florist, given to us by my MIL and FIL after the sudden and unexpected death of our precious cat, Earl Grey, just over six years ago. We planted it as a tribute to him and it has bloomed beautifully every year after that. I had read that it’s difficult to get florist’s hydrangeas to thrive in a garden setting, but we planted it on the south side of the house in a somewhat sheltered location.

Thanks for your kind comment, Kay Susan. It means a lot, especially coming from you. I was inspired to start keeping nature journals years ago after reading Janet Marsh’s Nature Diary (another discount bookstore treasure!). And your delicate and detailed illustrations always remind me of hers…
