Bees in the Flowers

This Queen's Lace Achillea has been in my family for three generations.  My mother had it first in the home I grew up in, she brought some to my grandmother before moving, and now I have spread it around the yard.  The color and fern like foliage are gorgeous, and the bees and butterflies love it!  I'm working a little larger today than I have for a while - and it was harder!  Using a new paper, it was thinner than expected, and the sizing seemed lighter than normal.  Each batch is different when they are handmade.  Love capturing this bed of flowers in ink and watercolor!  Painting number 2716 in 2716 days.
