My mother is an avid gardener. She spends all of her spare moments planting, pruning and watering the various plants in her garden. It is not an uncommon sight to see her hands covered in soil with twigs sticking out of her wild mane of hair. I always look forward to visiting her in Spring when her garden is adorned with so many beautiful flowers and sweet smells. She truly has a “green thumb”. It was a no-brainer to draw something botanical for her. I chose to draw poppies.
