Artist's Description

Silver Ragwort (Jacobaea maritima) growing wild on the rocky shores of the Mediterranean island of Gozo in April 2017 when visiting the site of the Azure Window which had sadly collapsed into the sea only a few weeks before.

This flower really has silvery leaves – hence its name – so my image is as shot and has not got partial colouring!

By a big coincidence in Autumn 2017 I bought some flowering plants for my balcony in Munich with an “autumn leaf accompaniment”. Unlike the main flowers, the silvery leaves – which I’d pretty much ignored – not only survived the winter but grew tremendously and produced countless tiny yellow flowers throughout the summer of 2018. It is already producing its first tiny buds in February 2019, despite snow and frost.

But the amazing thing is that I only discovered this photo which I took almost two years ago recently when going through my archives.

The flowers are about 1 cm or half an inch in diameter. The bees just love them, sometimes they are bigger than the flowers!

Dedicated to my plant and its two sisters which I gave to friends last summer as they had grown so much and were taking over my balcony boxes:-)

Location: Gozo, Republic of Malta.
