Wonderful photos....the top one would make a really lovely soft wash painting. It has an Asian feel to it. Is this your photo, Jane? If so could I use it to make a painting from please? I might need you to e-mail me it in a larger size in 300dpi to get a clearer look. I can just see this in many many washes creating a subtle grey...

Thanks, Jane, for showing the photos. I've seen those but didn't know they were called old man's beard :) Beautiful rosehips to be painted later :)

Dear Jane,
Beatiful photos, they look like your paintings. Very interesting and charming, the names given for these plants are.
Cheers, Sadami
