I am an artist, my name is Amanda G. I love making art, and I like to plant flowers in the spring time. I have been doing some drawings of different flowers. You can find all of these different flowers in the spring in Maine, my favorite state where I live.
I wanted to make these drawings because it reminds me of springtime. In the spring time, I go around in my neighborhood for a walk, taking pictures of my neighbors' gardens. It reminds me how much I care about all the people who have to stay home because of the corona-virus.
People can use my guide so that when they go walking in their own neighborhood, they can recognize flowers that they did not know about before.
#1 Lilly - I think this flower is pretty, it reminds me of memories of family.
#2 Tiger Lilly - I like the bright colors of this flower! It reminds me of night time.
#3 Dandelion - Dandelions are a pain in the butt to pull out of the ground, they come in my yard every year. I like the way that they look but I wish they would stay out of my back yard.
#4 Butter Cups - When you rub the flower under your chin it leaves a color. I like them because they are cute, some times when you breathe in they get stuck to your nose.
#5 Queen Anne's Lace - I see this flower every year when I am out in the community. I think they are the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen in my life!
#6 Trout Lilly - I haven't seen a Trout Lilly before, but I would like to! I hear that you can find them in the woods or forest where it is wet.
#7 Lupines - I have seen these flowers before, my neighbor at the end of the road has a Lupine plant, they smell so sweet!
#8 White Trillium - I have never seen one of these flowers, but I would like to. You can find this flower in the forest as well, maybe I should take a hike!
#9 Purple Violet - I think this a beautiful flower, and would like to see one. I think they grow on the edges of people's lawns.
#10 Black-Eyed Susan - I like how these flowers smell, and they look pretty. The name reminds me of Susan Collins who is also from Maine.
Stop and smell the roses!
