Abutilon 1

© Ellen Blonder
Some dear friends brought a gift of an abutilon plant when they visited earlier this month. I sketched the flowers in my sketchbook, trying to capture the tangerine shades and rich green leaves with colored pencil, and with more than a little frustration. I'll try watercolors next, before I find the perfect place to plant it in the garden.


  1. They are such a lovely plant, and snails think so too!

  2. Thanks for the reminder, Jeanette. I'll have to remember when I look for where to plant this.
