A walk in the summer forest- collected

Trees

I went for a walk and collected a blossom, a leaf and some moss. It is interesting how the forest changes the whole year through. After a rain storm everything is green and the paths are misty. I call this painting A walk in the summer forest

#plantlavender



#plantlavender

I am starting a small project- Plant Lavender
If you already have some lavender in your garden or will plant some in the future I would love to see your lavender patches. Post your pictures on instagram #plantlavender and help the bees.

Why?
-bees are important pollinators 
-they are endangered due to habitat loss and pesticide 
-without bees our supermarkets would have half the amount of fruit and vegetables

Ornithogalum umbellatum



One of my lasted scientific illustrations- it is so sad how all spring plants have now stopped blooming. Lucky there is beautiful red clover as well as other summer plants to be seen. The bees are buzzing happily and the holidays are just so calming and wonderful.
