summer solstice #7

| No Comments
Several years ago an artist and gardener friend suggested I plant garlic so that I could paint these garlic scapes. I find them each June at the farmers market and they have become part of how I perceive June. Their looping growth unrolls my visions of the long evenings and how pots interact with what they contain.
