Back Yard Boogaloo

I loved the combination of plants at Lavandula lavender farm which I painted back in 2014. I must do the same thing in my back yard, I thought and, two years later, here we are under the plum tree.

I was going to title it “Nigella, Nasturtium, Nasturtium, Rose” after that glowing Singer Sargent painting but it was too much of a mouthful, even for a homage.

Speaking of mouthfuls, I’m looking forward to the tasty nigella seeds and nasturtium pods later this autumn.
