Scabiosa Pods • May Flower Challenge • Day Twenty-Seven
The visual texture of Scabiosa for day Twenty-seven of The May Flower Challenge .
This challenge has been started by Lori Moon, fellow blogger, talented photographer and jewelry artisan.
Scabiosa, a perrenial, also known as the pincushion flower. As you deadhead the spent flowers she rewards you with more blooms. I pulled these out of the garden to photograph because of the textural beauty. The pods definitely invite a drawing to happen. A wonderful plant to have in the garden. Scabiosa attracts birds and butterflies. It also provides a source of nectar for bees and butterflies. I love how the pods give the plant a second act after blooming. Enjoy!
Make sure to visit the other artists who are participating in the challenge at Lori Moon's website. I love challenges like this because it helps build reference material for your body of work, it adds to your sketchbook, portfolio, motif library if you are a Surface pattern designers and so on. Make it work for you.
Thank you for stopping by!
