Small White on Verbena Bonariensis
Just a few butterflies in the gardena at the moment, We’ve seen a few whites, small tortoiseshells and today either a Meadow Brown or a Gatekeeper. Something has already taken a bite out of this ones wing. The Verbena are a star flower for attracting insects into the garden.
I’ve been doing some preparation for the community art event on Sunday and I think I’ve got things worked out so we can do some practical printmaking using foam board (actually I had three sheets of the the foam board that goes under laminate flooring which I cut up this morning). I think it’s the safest thing to use as it’s possible to draw straight onto the surface. And I’ve settled on using water-based block printing ink, which I’ve had for some time, but it seems to be OK.
