I notice a lot of things in my summer garden- often they are things I expect, and other times they are definitely unexpected!
This fungus was a surprise in the pot of a potted rose. I sketched it first, then decided I wanted to try and paint it- only the first attempt came out rather muddy :/ So I tried again, with a bit more success. Oh well!
This aubergine/eggplant was something I grew in the garden- I plan to turn it into spread, but before eating, it took it's place in my notebook. I decided it warrented a Susan Branch style treatment (which I always enjoy) and just had fun with it :D
