Welcome to day 11 of the May Flower Challenge.
I'm fascinated with flowers. They are all over my tiny apartment. I photograph them all the time. I draw, paint, doodle them, create them out of paper... I also see them all over the NYC. Each day I will post flowers and I hope that you will join in. The only rules are that your blog post or flickr photo that you link must contain flowers.

I was inspired by chives today.
The lush green and beautiful purple flower go so well together. At the Farmer's Market in Union Square in NYC there are farmers that each week have fresh cut herbs. The aroma can wake you up on a cool Spring morning. It also reminds me of the garden that I used to have and still sometimes miss.
Last night, while I watched television, I took my black micron pen and my colored pencils and created this.
I'll be honest, I'm always a little shy to draw.
My inner critic still speaks in the back of my head.
Growing up my brother was the kid that could draw and I was the one who played the piano, wrote poetry, etc.
Well, I am happy to say that I sent my inner critic to bed and I had a lot of fun creating this lovely chive flower.
I believe that I can now try to draw other flowers like chrysanthemums. Or, maybe I'll start with something a little simpler like a Forget-me-not.
Participate by linking your blog post to my blog post. Each day during May, starting on May 1st, on my blog post I will have a linkytool available so that you can link your specific blog post (not just your blog but the post itself) to my blog post. And, please remember to link back.
Participate by linking to the flickr group - May Flower Challenge- and adding a photo of your flower creation. Make sure you add your photo to the linky below each day that you post.
