  1. I love this! The fluent lines and color palet. The red outlines makes it complete. have a lovely weekend, Johanna

    • Thank you, Johanna. I enjoyed sitting in the sun making this drawing. I rarely draw in pencil.

  2. Your choice of colors are always so pleasing to me. This drawing brought an instant smile!

    • I am glad you enjoyed the cheerfulness of this drawing, Lori. The red borders of the leaves become more intense when the plant is in flower.

  3. Thank you again for sharing more drawings from your old garden, Margaret. They are always so pleasing to the eye. Like Lori, I always feel happy when I view them. The colours and shapes are lovely.

    • I appreciate receiving your comments, Jane. This succulent is also grown here in Castlemaine. The one in my back garden is surviving the frosts better this year – the leaves haven’t turned into a black, pulpy mass at this stage.

      I am hoping it will flower later in the year when the weather becomes warmer.

  4. I love succulents. Unfortunately, so does our duck! The frost has seen to quite a few of my remaining succulents this year as it has been a pretty cold winter here in Tassie but they tend to spring back (no pun intended 😉 ) if there is at least a piece of them that the frost hasn’t knocked. Lovely image Margaret 🙂

    • Hi Fran, The succulents in my garden are having varied fortunes in withstanding the frost onslaught. Some show no visible effect – in fact, I think they laugh in the face of frost – whilst others, oh dear.

      I potted a couple and placed them under the sunny north facing verandah where I hope they will recover in spring.

      • So long as there is a nubbin left they tend to grow back. They are pretty tenacious Margaret 🙂
