Verbascum Sketch and Another Giveaway

Discovering new flowers and plants is one of my favorite things about sketching. This week, we sketched at Portland Nursery and I saw this beauty- verbascum "Copper Rose". The long stocks of flowers remind me of hollyhocks which bloom later in the summer.

Please check out the Portland Art Collective giveaway. Our May giveaway is one of my wire crocheted necklaces. Comment on the giveaway post to enter your name to win the necklace. I'd love to have one of my blog readers win it.
