This has been a very demanding painting, as Gill-over-the-ground turns out to be jam-packed with details! I didn't want to do it without the running stem, as it is so much a part of the character of the plant, running "over-the-ground". Notice that the stem is square, giving away that it is a mint. We use it in our wild spring salads, for colour as well as its bitter minty flavour.
