Weeds verses painting and the weeds are winning. Another Sunday, another hangover and I’m still weeding, but the aching muscles have eased and my back is better after a trip to the physio ! The battles of the weeds started 5 years ago when a car accident prevented any gardening at all and slowed me up ever since. The long convalescence gave me time to enjoy the garden from a sitting position, and a lot more time to paint. This was one of those paintings - the sunflowers that I had sown earlier in the year. This year's sunflowers have just germinated and I look forward to painting them again.
