My drawings of plants are usually weeds from my yard but this one is not a weed. I know this because it was at the Boehner Botanical Gardens and it had a sign that said Canna.

Last year I posted a drawing of dead daffodils in a vase but I didn’t post drawings of the living daffodils from that year. Here they are.

In the garden.

This little weed is growing out of a crack between the cement walk way and some brick pavers.

 

It's about 3-4 inches tall and has a dark purple flower with yellow at the center.

This is the same plant I posted one year ago in Weeds 3. It is now a monster of a plant, far to big to draw in its entirety, on my little Palm Zire screen. I’ve noticed this plant in other yards around the neighborhood but have no idea what it is.

This plant has large dark green leaves and little tear drop shaped purple blossoms.

Sometimes if you don’t pull a weed it grows tall and flowers. You can’t tell from this black and white drawing but this weed has little purple flowers that hang down from the top of the stalk.

 

My sister-in-law gave us this hydrangea. Even though it’s been pruned and has its roots all wrapped up in a bag it’s got some shoots on those branches. It’s trying.

The daffodils were early and stayed longer than usual but, sadly, are now over.
