OLEANDER IN RED – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Well, they are in seasonal Christmas colours: a painting of my oleander which came from a cutting I took in Lake Garda, Italy. My grandmother roamed my home town with a pair of scissors in her handbag ready to increase the range of her garden plants – so it could be a hereditary trait.

At present the plant is indoors, out of frost’s way. I do like the petals with their wedge shapes, pushing to get at the sun’s rays.

Well, the last post for 2018 – A Happy New Year to you all.
