Friday's flower girl: my favorite of them all!
English Rose is a close second, but I just adore Geums. Also called Avens and Grecian Rose, and documented here (and elsewhere on this blog, I know) they are, to me, the perfect flowers. Furry leaves and slender, strong little stems. Sweet (but not fussy) blooms in lovely colors of red, yellow, peach, gold.
They are perfectly suited to informal (ahem, slightly wild and overgrown) gardens like mine. And that's why I love them - they're not a wildflower, but they their pretty, tumbling blooms seem almost as unfussy and beautifully unassuming.
Oh! Yes. I've been getting inquiries about these new paintings (thank you!) and how to purchase them. They will be available soon, all posted at once. As I usually do, I'll post the exact time and date these flower girl originals will be available in my shop, so if you've got your eye on 'em, you'll know exactly when you can purchase them.
I hope you have a nice weekend ahead of you!
