My Wife's Caladium Drawing

Since I was hard at work on an editing project, my wife took the initiative and saved Sketch A Plant Sunday all on her own! The caladium arrangement I made earlier had been calling her name all week, and she just had to take a crack at those intricate networks of lines and veins before they started to fade. I for one think she did an amazing job. What do you think?


This is the subject of her drawing, Caladium bicolor "Candida"

If this didn't quench your fix for caladiums head on over to my friend Meem's blog Hoe and Shovel! She's the undisputed queen of caladiums and her garden is among the prettiest in Central Florida.

  1. I just LOVE what your wife did with the leaves in your vase! What a nice way to enjoy this arrangement for much longer than the cut caladiums will last. Thanks, too, for the link back to my blog... the caladiums are really making the summer garden shine! Meems

  3. Wonderful work. A lovely plant that doesn't need care just the enjoyment of being looked upon.
