A Splash of Colour

In my part of the world, we are in middle of a drought, officially declared last week. We have quite severe water restrictions so the garden which is my greatest love after art is suffering. However I have managed to get colour with two of my favourite flowers – geraniums and fuchsias. They seem to like the dry very much as they have grown to triffid like proportions.
Today I decided to do a quick watercolour of the geraniums at the back.
Here are some photos of my love splashes of colour that greet me everyday of the year in my garden. 

 Have a happy Sunday and week creating wonderful art everyone.

  3. Sorry you have a water drought ~ yet your watercolor splashes are delightful, colorful and free ^_^

  7. I will happily send you some rain... and I wish we has some colour at this time of the year, but it is a wall of green... Autumn is when is cools down enough for us to have some blooms... and my bamboo is triffid like as well... hope the rain arrives soon...xx
