Recently, I installed a small preformed pond in my front garden. This is my project for the season.
Already in 3 weeks, my new water lily has grown 6 new leaves! The resident birds have also been investigating. Now waiting for the frogs and other creatures to show up!
I had hoped to put in a Lotus, however this pond is not big enough. Maybe next year I’ll have to consider making a much larger one…..
I’ve recently started to paint on paper also, still using the Lotus blossom as my theme.
I am spending time on experimenting with various colour combinations, consistency of paint and painting various thickness of lines, free hand. Practice makes perfect, I guess!
