More garden gems and a leaf study

Here is some of the loveliness that is blooming in the garden today:  Spotted tiger lilies, Astilbe, and Foxglove.

I’ve been spending time in my studio as well as strolling in the garden.  Several years ago, I collected some lovely magnolia leaf skeletons from our daughter’s yard.  Somehow they had survived the winter mostly intact.  They are beautifully delicate and fragile, their vein structures all that is left.  I have wanted to add these to my leaf series for awhile and only recently figured out how to do so.  To test my method, I did a small study, just a tiny section of the whole leaf.  Next under the needle is the whole thing.
