Alex in the Garden-Day 2

© Ellen Blonder
I put Alex amid plants that are really growing in the garden, although not in this arrangement. I like the contrasting textures and colors among the leaves and flowers that I chose: oak-leaf hydrangea, hydrangea macrophylla, society garlic, penstemon, heuchera and two kinds of hellebore. Alex goes home soon, so I've got to work on him more first. There's a long way to go on this painting.
