I have not been out and about for a while, spending a lot of time drawing, painting and trying to write. (I like the research part of writing but at some point, I actually have to do the writing itself.) So I've been neglecting my nature world and that's not good. I went out in the back yard and took some close-ups of my potted varieties (official-sounding garden-speak) and then posed a little art challenge. Just zoom in for an abstract. Maybe I'll use these abstracts for a painting project. More research!
