  1. Wonderful! I carry a notebook and pen on my walks, but can only “sketch” in words. I have always been so enamored with colorful nature sketchbooks. I wish I possessed that talent. I’ve tried to learn to sketch. Alas…

      my joy for sketching came as a surprise – totally unexpected …

      1. Unexpected joy, perhaps the best kind.

    Wow, just wonderful! Each illustration is excellent…I like your frames, especially the one for the euphorbia that acts as the soil line. The photos are a nice addition, so clean and bright. I’ve seen that little lotus, or a simialr plant, here in the U.S. too. I like the way you paired the one line drawing with the watercolor, and the splatters are like fallen petals. And the same euphorbia has escaped cultivation around Seattle – I found this, in case you’re interested.

      THANK you! and YES I am interested 😉
      I find similar weeds in Spain and Norway, but the stems and leaves are more rubber-like here in the south.
      Most of the flowers i pick up are classified as invasive; strange how plants transgress their native habitat creating both joy & worries ….

        Well put. They certainly do! You must really enjoy going back and forth between Norway and Spain, such different environments and cultures. I look forward to seeing more sketches!
