Plant Portraits

I have been watching our garden since February when we moved in. We used to live on a chalk clifftop, but here the soil is clay and heavy, so most of the plants are new to me. I think I prefer the wild flowers to paint, although the camellias and hydrangeas look perfect, even after storms.


  1. Count your blessings. Here (N. of Key West) we dig down and hit salt water. So a crew comes in to remove a plug of coral marl and put in soil. But with big pots even roses are possible...if the iguanas don't eat them!

  2. I have never considered the difficulties of iguanas eating plants...
    We have a fox and badger guests, they are very particular about sticking to their pathways, you can see the lines in the grass.
