Green Mustard Blooms

It's not spring, but my green mustard is bolting - so I'm painting their lovely blooms!  I am a winter gardener - growing many greens, tomatoes, peppers and more hydroponically.  After a wonderful trip to Florida, I have arrived home to find several green and one red mustard blooming in my absence!  Seeds are forming on the lower stalks, so I have them in the center of the table like a spring bouquet!  With ink and watercolor I capture these blooms on a miniature handmade paper. When the seed pods dry, I will scatter them in the front pasture - where I will paint their new blooms afresh by the barn!  Painting number 3703 in 3703 days.
