I felt this specimen to be a spectacular example of the Ramalina lichen. The folds and undulations were an absolute delight to illustrate.

In petals pressed, memories entwined,
Gifts from him, a love refined.
Books embrace blooms, tales untold,
Canvas whispers stories, memories unfold.

These cones are not just representatives from my garden.
These are embodiment of our children. They are unique and special, but what will grow up from these seeds?
Lots of time, patience and love required to make them sprout and become strong and beautiful trees.

I am very much inspired by the diversity of Magnolias at Kew and sought to capture the interplay of the lightness and darkness, textures, and the upward gaze towards the sky in this portrait. The magnolias' delicate tepals, juxtaposed against the sturdy branches create a sense of awe and wonder. I hope this drawing captures the beauty and inspiration that I find every year in the Magnolia collection at Kew.

I further studied some of the specimens in Singapore Botanic Gardens. I'm delighted that it won the 2nd prize for the John Waterman Award, Plantae 2023.

Iris pseudacorus or ‘Yellow Flag Iris’ gets its ‘pseudacorus’ name from the introduced Acorus calamus. Their flowers are completely different, but their leaves are identical and so the UK’s yellow flag iris is known as the ‘pseudo’ acorus.
Iris pseudacorus has v-shaped interlocking leaves at the base, leading to erect blue green/green leaves up to 90cm long with penknife-shaped tips. The bright yellow flowers are 8-10cm across and can have purple veins at the petal base. The outer tepals are unbearded and the stylar branches have become petaloid with stigma lobes.
