Just reposting this as I finished the lower section. I decided on some grasses and some leaves. I looked up birch leaves to make sure I had them right...oaks I know! I decided on no color for now...I could always change my mind another day.
But it is framed and in the Hawthorne Art show for this afternoon!
Hoping to do another pen and ink soon as I found this fun and even relaxing to do.
The time for my knee replacement surgery is drawing near...a week from Wednesday so we are trying to get things in order here allowing for me to relax and rest and do my therapy. My daughter, Julie, will arrive a week from Monday and stay a week with us...holding down the fort.
Weather here in FL is lovely now...will be in mid 80s the whole time my daughter is visiting. My two favorite months in Florida are November and April. But March isn't bad. Coping with the time change today.
It is full spring here. The Jacaranda trees are purple and the Tabebuia trees are bright yellow. Azaleas are almost done now.
No hibiscus this spring since the hard freeze in January did them in. But they are re-greening now so there is hope. Hawthorne bushes are in bloom and orange trees send amazing sweet smells. The oaks here lose leaves and grow new ones in the spring...bright green and shiny. We have a pair of sweet ducks on the pond now probably nesting. (also a few small alligators!). The song birds are nesting now. Lots of sweet sounds in the yard!
