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.

Moss Like © Lynn Wiles 2018
I think this may be a succulent. It looks like moss and there are lichen on the rock as well, so all is good.

Quite the contrast from life outside.
