The News © Lynn Wiles 2018
The rescue organization brought over this adorable pup yesterday and I adopted her. She came with all the pink accessories and needs a new name. Any ideas?
She’s five months old, which means dog parks and socialization, not conducive to being a photo assistant just yet, so this may not be a daily blog for awhile.

After a beautiful spring weekend, violas and pansies planted, flowers budding in the garden and now it is cold and snowing -sad face.

The Month of March © Lynn Wiles 2018
This March has seen a lot of cold, a lot of snow, and I have been spending a lot of time with my cyclamen plant. This assignment will last at least another month, but at least it is starting to look and feel like spring outside at last.

Dissection © Lynn Wiles 2018
One of the things that I surprisingly love to do for my botanical illustration course is to dissect flowers. On the left is a faded cyclamen flower with its reproductive parts and the the two on the right are the fruit of the same plant. Greatly enlarged and turned to black and white, all the better to draw.

Nothing like back to back storms to make one dream of spring in a greenhouse. I won’t post photos from the blizzard yesterday, just pretend it never happened for awhile.
