Tulip Tree Seed Pod? Husk?: pen, marker on paper. This is really a tree that keeps on giving cool stuff to draw. Imagine it a giant drawing! Amazing!!
Tulip Tree Flower: pen, marker on paper. So the tulip tree flowers are starting to come out! They are a subtle, strange and lovely sort of flower, and worth seeking out. Incidentally, I took extreme liberties with the colour of the leaves and flower; they are all light, warm green, creamy inside the flower and with a flash of yellow and orange at the base of the petals. This flash of colour is often the only way to pick the flower out amongst the leaves. My markers and scanner were rather uncooperative today.
Japanese Maple: pen, marker on paper. Always a beautiful tree, but dangerous, just look at those serrated edges.
Manitoba Maple: pen on paper. Strange, irregular lobes, each leaf different and not symmetrical. These trees like to sprout up along a fence line and weave themselves into your chainlink fence
Mystery Sprout: pen, marker on paper. I don't know what kind of plant this is. It's sturdy and a little fleshy and grows really fast. It also happens to be coming into our yard from the neighbours yard, so who knows what they're growing over there. It reminds me a little of a Hens and Chicks flower; a little bit alien.
It's probably just one of those freaky big dandelions or something.
Daffodil: pencil, marker on paper. We will be visiting Bryn's parent's house soon, and I am really looking forward to getting a look at the gigantic sea of daffodils they have planted over the past 15 years under two enormous feral apple trees in their backyard.
