85 Growing stars

Today out on a local dog walk I passed a plant that I don’t name of – but my name for it is the ‘growing stars’ plant (if you know the name please tell me!).

I took a fab picture of it in bloom in the summer and retook a picture of it today with all of the flowers dried out, as usual you can see this on the Flickr archive. I also picked a bunch of them to create my heart art, initially I tried painting them and stamped them in my sketchbook but wasn’t effective. So in my true ‘make-it-up-as-I-go-along’ style I cut up a sponge and used this as a base to insert the stems into and create a 3D heart.
