  1. 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 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
