Slowly the full page for Karen’s book is coming together. Back in May when we spent some time on Cape Perpetua, I took a few photos of plants I didn’t know. One turned out to be Corydalis scouleri, or Scouler’s Corydalis. I was drawn to it’s beautiful elongated leaves and elegant spikes of flowers. It seemed like a good fit for the book collaboration. Karen’s theme is Patterns in Nature:Forest. More work to come to finish off the page a bit more but at least color has finally graced the page!
