What if I knew all the plants only by seeing their buds?
When I walk through my garden in spring time I feel great. As if the nature gives me some energy I can charge my body and mind with. The more time I spend in the garden, the more I perceive the small beautiful things nature wants to show me.
One little thing that shows me that spring arrived are the little buds which slowly find their way to the fresh air. I started to watch them carefully and was amazed by their strong appearance though they seem to be so small and fragile.
But while watching them and bringing them on paper I could only call them : “Bud 1”, “Bud 2”, “Bud I found after I stepped on it” etc. . I had no idea what the plants name actually is. And thats sad. So I asked myself….what If I knew and what if I could show others too???
The solution for me seemed to be a map. A map where the buds are located on and which teaches you their name and their appearance.
Possibility to visualize the buds

So what I finally do what I wanted from the beginning. I illustrate the bud. While drawing I more and more see a little personality inside this little plant. Does it not look like a crown?
What If my garden is not just a garden but from the buds point of view a kingdom? …. Why not!
Slowly I began to see a personality in each of the little buds I saw and tried to give them a name:
