My mother was a botanist. She and both of my grandmothers all had beautiful gardens. Growing up, my mom would have my brother and I take a “tour of the garden “ and teach us the names of all of the flowers and plants. I got pretty good at naming everything. When I moved into my first home, I thought gardening was in my genes. It was all osmosis, right? It would have been better if I’d done my research. Go figure. I have a habit of overwatering or under watering, and then either wondering what I did wrong or bringing the plant to my mom for rehabilitation. It’s like a plant sanctuary...truly amazing what she can do. So, this weekend I bought a few plants. I decided if I draw them and learn more about their care that maybe, just maybe, they’ll survive the summer.
