Seedmage by ursulav Seedmage by ursulav
Seedmages tend to be an indolent breed of gardener. When you can coax a seed into growing--or a weed into not growing--merely by having a small magical chat with it, you get a little lazy. As a result, they have a fair amount of work in spring, and spend most of the rest of the time with their feet up, unless somebody calls them in to give the Japanese stiltgrass a severe talking-to.

Rootmages--who tend to be sturdy, serious types, very much concerned with available groundwater and rhizome division--and soilmages--for whom every hard rain is an occasion to rush out and rescue drowning worms--dismiss seedmages as slackers only concerned with annuals and frivolities, a reputation unduly harsh, but not entirely without merit.
-----------------------------

Painter 7, digital--I did the sketch eons ago, and tripped over it a few days ago and decided to finish it off. Prints are available for $10 and $20 plus shipping--send a note or visit [link] for details.

:'( I always feel sorry for the worms that drown in parking lots, so I save as many as I can. But I can't save ALL of them!
