This series of oil paintings picks on the hobby of gardening, which along other domestic pastimes such as sewing and baking, was rediscovered by a Generation Z and Millenials during the March - May 2020 Covid-19  lockdown. With everyone encouraged, or obliged, to stay contained within the household, gardening offered reflection and escape. Shared images and posts showing plants, gardens and harvest opened new channels of conversation on social media on the topic, both in groups set up for individual sharing the interest, as well as private two way conversations.
