Fuschia.jpg

One of my first pastel drawings

I’d been sat in the front garden, of the terraced house i live in and decided to bring some colour to my drawing pad

The trees in the garden were coming into bloom , whilst the fuschias and minature roses were coming into their own.  They danced around like ballerinas in the slight breeze

I tried to get some detail in, my talent more observant of the leaves than the petals.

But in what seemed to be a short while, i’d frittered away two whole hours on the garden bench.  Pausing on the hour to enjoy a Corned beef Sandwich and a cool lemonade.

Playing around with the Greens , Pinks and Reds.  With Blue making a cameo appearance.

Perfume

Perfume

A poem written by inkdrop for the daily post : Perfume

Salford (via Heraklion) , 10th May 2017

Perhaps it was her eyes that first attracted me

Everyone stopped – freeze frame as we met

Reaction to that wonderful smile – unabashed, but

From that day on, she seemed to be everywhere

Unusually, i couldnt see her around, was my

Memory playing tricks on me ?

Even the blossom’s sent a message of her

Hibiscus

A tale of #flowers and #jazzberryjam for the #coloryourworld challenge.

 

Colour of the Garden Hibiscus

it’s making a bit of a noise

but for fans of this wonderful flower

its a noise they all enjoy

attracting the birds and the butterflies

raising with visitors a smile

who will spend some time in the garden

enjoying the flowers for a while
