Garden angel, texture
Deepest sympathy to the people of New Zealand in the aftermath of the earthquake in Christchurch.
Garden statue, textured (my own plus one from Kim Klassen) and lightly tinted. The angel has ten years of weathering through years in a small, very informal herb garden which now needs renovation. The vine across her chest is common oregano Origanum vulgare, which has been there for many years longer than the statue. This form of oregano has leaves that are oval, green, and slightly fuzzy; pale pink flowers are small and clustered. Pinching back the long stems will keep the plant looking thick, lush and more controlled, but I tend to let it grow its nectar-rich flowers for the bees.
Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions for improvement are very much appreciated.
