- Bitterweed by another name

Retrospective (4/29/2016, originally posted on 3/26/2016)

Wildflowers multiplied overnight, and if they were bothered by the frosty mornings (very unusual for late March), it didn't show. So this time around, it was the four-nerve daisies that caught my eye ...


and recalling Mo's pointers on evening primrose, I tried to pay a bit more attention to details. I even traced a flower directly onto cloth ...



leaving a perfect ring of pollen to mark the center. Then I tried my best to replicate the four veins in each petal, the central Fibonacci spiral and the disk flowers surrounding it ...

Patch #85

But capturing the reality of the color, even using my brightest floss, was beyond my reach.
