I had been nurturing a hippeastrum bulb all year. In fact, it is four years old now and has graced us with a gorgeous flower every year. This year I re potted it and gave it some TLC and it responded by sending up a promising flowering stalk. Unfortunately. it had a little accident and snapped off before it flowered. However, I though I would give it a chance and stuck the stalk in a vase. I was rewarded with a beautiful flower. It is a little paler than I would have hoped for and is not lasting very long but still a wonderful thing to behold.
I have been very neglectful of my intention to keep up a sketching journal, as well as an exercise routine and managed on the spur of the moment to combine the two!!!
I did some quick sketches of the hippeastrum flower whilst waiting for my daughter to get ready to go out for a walk! Bonus!
I would love to do delicate botanically correct watercolours, but these were fun.
Can I recommend looking at life from " a different perspective" for anyone needing inspiration? Not that it is advisable to go round on your hands and knees for very long!
.. and to be really truthful inspiration comes in bucket fulls in Bath!
