I struck out in most other fields of art, but so long as the wind isn't blowing too much I can tap a button on my phone. These are just a handful I've taken recently. The files are too large, so only links.

If this earns any interest I have TONS more pictures (rivaling the memory my apps take up).

Some lovely pics there :D

I wish I was more green-fingered. Our garden at home is a bit of a lost cause. We're gradually taking over next-door's garden with our ivy.

Yes! Definitely post more! I recognize some of those flowers from my own garden.

Have these images been direct or loading on an imgur page for anybody? Curious to how they're showing up for others.

I haven't been taking too many artsy pictures lately since summer remembered it is supposed to be hot. Just concentrating on keeping things alive.

But here's a chunk of stuff I've been working on recently. I just moved a lot of it around today, so it's completely unorganized right now.

Yes, that is a Bulbasaur pot hiding in there. The Aeonium wasn't doing well in it, so I re-potted it with a cactus that is both more fitting and should do better with little water.
