Draws Shoots and Leaves – a good name for a budding botanical artist

What else does a botanical artist do but draw shoots and leaves and of course all the other parts of a plant. It is of course also a play on the book title ‘Eats Shoots and Leaves’ which was very popular a few years ago. After deciding that I wanted to do a blog about my progress as a botanical artist, I asked the family to help with finding a name. Much laughter and hilarity followed with some totally stupid and crazy ideas, surprisingly (or maybe unsurprisingly) many of the names where already in use but finally the name Draws Shoots and Leaves germinated.
