This small watercolour painting, I did as a part of my project #painteverydaysomethingjustanything is really a love letter to my grandma. She loves this plant as much as I do!😉😍
We both love plants, and in particular strange and peculiar plants. And even better if… they are edible!
I grew up learning from her about all kinds of plants, edible, useful, poisonous, mythology important, tasteful, delicious, strange… The list goes on. It was rarely just a name when she showed me a plant, it was appended with a story, a use, and usually it’s Latin name as well.
Among all the plants we love, there is a special plant we just can’t get enough of, – the beautiful and captivating Pélargonium.
We had so, soo much fun that day we visited the Botanical Garden in Oslo together. Me and my grandma. We got totally lost in the Pélargonium greenhouse, looking at every single plant, reading, touching, smelling. Some are even edible (but I promise, we didn’t taste)!
We ended up forgetting to eat, and seeing only about one third (or less?) of the garden. But, bringing home a memory we still talk and laugh about!
Thank you grandma! 😄🤩
(She even shares part of my name)
