Virtual Sketch Date



This is from the photograph for the Virtual Sketchdate for this month. It's a rhododendron bud. We don't grow many of those here where I live and its a good thing. Right now it's snowing and has been all day. Temperatures dropped to several degrees below freezing, and anything that has budded is in mortal jeopardy. It's been a long, cold winter and this photograph is my only ray of hope.

Lovely painting! I love the purple border!

A beautiful image of spring. The colours and shapes are perfect and the border sets it off well.

This is an ancient rhododendron bush that really needs moving or removing, but I never have the heart to do so because when it blooms its glorious.
