Gardening Owls

Originally I created this design for my boyfriend, D, as a Christmas present. He’s really into growing things and green peas are one of his favorite. And he also likes owls – they are sort of his ‘guiding animals’. (By which I mean that an owl showed up right before he was born, to his parents, and later on he often met owls when something special was happening.)

So I made a t-shirt for him with this design: cute little owls growing a big pea plant. He loved it, and so many other people who saw the design loved it as well.

Why am I writing about this now, you might ask.

Well, it’s because our life is taking us towards vegetables and growing things again.

As some of you might know, we’ve just moved back to Hungary from Greece. New life, new circumstances, new challenges, new direction.

D will be studying at a Hungarian university in English. The course is called ‘Sustainable Agriculture’. It was created for foreign students and the program looks really interesting.

And this is the first step into a new direction. We’ve finally decided that we want to start a version of a market garden next spring. The exact plans are very blurry, and there’s just so much to figure out.

But it looks like that our path is more and more clear. The direction is certainly there, which is a great thing. It makes a huge difference to have precise goals.

In the meantime, I’m working on my artistic and crafty line. I already have a few vegetable-related drawing ideas!

  1. Great image, great story about the image, and wow – looks like your creative hands will be forever busy! Good luck with the new goals – spring will be here before you know, and you’ll have done lots of planning, studying, ordering seeds? perhaps – and maybe charting the phases of the moon for planting and pruning and such!
