Challenge #31: une collection


Je ne collectionne presque rien. Peut-être parce que de manière générale, je n'aime pas acheter. La seule chose que je collectionne avec un peu plus de passion, ce sont mes différentes sortes de menthes dans le jardin. J'aime beaucoup faire le tour de mon jardin, seul ou accompagné, et sentir chacun de ces parfums, semblables et tellement différents. Souvent, les visiteurs repartent avec une pousse de leur menthe préférée.

I collect nearly nothing. Perhaps because in a general way, I do not like to buy. The only thing that I collect with a little more passion, are my various kinds of mints in the garden. I like to walk in my garden, alone or accompanied and to smell all these similar and so different perfumes. Often, the visitors leave with a growth of their preferred mint.

You make lovely, clear drawings. I really love your style. I wonder what you do with all that mint?

What I do with that mint?
Except tea and the pleasure to smell it, I do nothing special with it. Like most of the collections ;-)

These are just beautiful and the shadows make them jump off the paper.
