What do you call it?Posted: July 11, 2015
I love when I’m painting on the street and a passerby gives me a little tidbit of information about what I am painting. Especially since sometimes I’m not really sure what I am going to write for the day’s post. Today I was mostly thinking “What can I say about these weeds on the side of the road?” But the polite gentleman who stopped to have a gander over my shoulder did have a little knowledge about the white weeds. It wasn’t the name of them — that was what I wanted to know, although now that I have had a second look I think they may be Queen Anne’s lace — no, what he remembered about these plants was that when he was a child he used to snap off the flower heads and use the hollow stems as peashooters. And yes, I do know that the orange ones are daylilies.
