Notes from the Garden – Little Mysteries

TM9668 Notes from the Garden, Little Mysteries 18×30 oil on panel

There are times when I can fall in love with something, not knowing what it is – like this mystery plant. Sort of like Lisianthus, a lot like Malvas, but not quite. A dear friend, who is a fabulous gardener, suggested it might be something that self-seeded and reverted to a wilder, simpler form. I like that explanation. I wish I could do the same. Details below. Enjoy.

Early Risers

TM9197 Early Risers 28×36 oil on panel

I like an early start in the morning, probably because it feels like I’ll be able to squeeze more hours out of the day. I suspect morning glories feel the same way. These are from the Victory Gardens in my Fenway neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Details below. Enjoy.
