I didn’t know that Jasmine’s nectar is toxic to honey bees. Wow.

Have a terrific day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Eric Edelman April 13, 2011, 12:27 pm

News to us too. But some sites say that butterflies seek out the nectar, which would imply that it’s not toxic to them. What an intricate world this is!

Have an excellent day! ๐Ÿ˜€

How interesting and a great sketch too.

Eric Edelman April 13, 2011, 10:00 pm

Thanks very much for your comment! Actually, Ziva applies tints to digitally-scanned antique wood-engraving images of botanical subjects to produce her pictures, which can then be printed in a variety of sizes.

Beautiful! And I’ve learned something about jessamine now.

Visiting from Hobo Mama and Natural Parents Network!

Ziva April 15, 2011, 2:12 am

Thanks. I would have thought they were honeysuckles, too. And you made it past the captcha both times!

Faythe @ GrammyMouseTails April 14, 2011, 8:11 pm

Really nice. Do you know of a work with bright colored flowers? I need those for 4 rooms we are decorating. We need paintings that have colors that complement the room. -Dave

Thanks! Have you looked at the florals available in our gallery? There may be something there that will work: http://blog.retrocollage.com/recommends/florals/

“jessamine has a nectar that is toxic to honeybees and other living things” – We one of these at the corner of our garden. Now I know why the reason why insects stay away from this plant. It’s a beautiful plant with amazing yellow flowers though…

Eric Edelman September 15, 2011, 12:32 pm

Thanks very much, Allan! We hope you’ll visit us again as we post more floral images.
