Many thanks, Maureen !*!*!*!*

Good morning / evening to all.
Welcome to the Septembre Plant Parade Challenge:

TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

The wild plants around us. I have taken some photos of some of the ones that grow aroud here.

Challenge # 2 - create / invent / imagine your own wild plant / flower. Show it to us

I hope you will enjoy this challenge.

Thanks Maria! So many varieties of botanicals around us and each has its own scientific name.

Re: Septembre Plant Parade CHALLENGE

Wild flowers - one of my favourite things. Sounds like a good excuse to go for a walk with my sketchbook

Re: Septembre Plant Parade CHALLENGE

I am glad you like it.
I was in a difficult position after Vivien took my theme. .

Kay, I have written the latin nomenclatura so that anyone, even if not english speaking, can find the vernacular name in their own language. I thought it would be nice for those who want to know the names .

Re: Septembre Plant Parade CHALLENGE

Thank you Maria!
One girl's weed is another girl's garden flower!!! ..... some of these are cultivated here!!!

Well, I don't have far to go to find wild flowers, so this should be a very nice challenge!

Re: Septembre Plant Parade CHALLENGE

I don't know if I will have the time to complete a painting, but I like the inspiration of the challenge, and I had a lovely walk looking for Autumn wildflowers as possibilities. Great theme.

Re: Septembre Plant Parade CHALLENGE

I have nothing yet. I've seen some very interesting plants today but the weather did not allow for sketching - even photographing was tricky as I kept getting rainwater on my lens!
