The Colors of Nature are indeed blooming as we enter the dog days of summer! Celebrate the season with this lovely coloring and instructional sketchbook by Lindsey Hopkins - I'm giving a copy away on Moogly!

Relax with an Adult Coloring Book
Coloring is one of those activities with multiple benefits. It's relaxing and soothing, mentally calming, and can boost creativity!
And The Colors of Nature is a lovely book to color! From the back:
"Be inspired by nature as you color, draw and sketch your way through 15 beautiful plants and flowers. From daisies and dahlias to roses and peonies, you will find pages filled with pretty petals to color.
In addition to artistic patterns, you will also find color tips, information about the symbolism of each flower, a drawing lesson, and room to record your sketches from nature. Take some time for yourself to relax, unwind, and color a garden all your own!"
Learn to Draw Your Favorite Plants
Indeed, The Colors of Nature goes beyond just standard adult coloring books, to teach you how to draw 15 popular plants yourself!
I really love how the steps are broken down - and unlike those "how to draw a pirate" tests from the back of magazines, there's no big scary jump in the process! (And wow, I'm really showing my age here, eh...?)
But I really do feel like with a little practice, I can draw these pretty plants!

This book looks amazing! I use coloring books as templates for painting on fabric & windows for holidays. Using the books gave me courage to start drawing on my own. I'd love to learn how to draw these flowers! I am an all-flower "me-likey" girl but daffodils hold a special place in my heart. My twin brother passed at just under 11 months old because the drs thought spinal meningitis was the flu. Just before he got sick, my mom found him in a flower bed eating the daffodils! Thinking of this & seeing daffodils, always makes me smile! Enjoy your coloring!!!
Hyacinth are my favorite flowers

Would love this coloring book. My Mom just died in June, she was 91 and had Parkinson's. We would crochet/knit together. Finding it hard to pick up something to work on (I have a blanket she started but could not finish, which I plan on finishing when I feel up to it). So I have been coloring to help me heal.
