on my verandah


I wasnt very happy with this sketch, I think I need to be more definite, or something.I drew it in first with pen and then used my aquarelle pencils. These bird houses are at the end of the verandah on the side of the house. Being a farm house there are all sorts of entrances and exits! When we have people for lunch or a barbeque this is where i put the food etc, but it is too hot at the moment so it has a few of last seasons butternut pumpkins, a large metal pelican and other odds and ends there. The plaque on the wall (door) I have had for years and is pottery in a lump of compressed wood.

Penny,
Your sketches and drawings are lovely - they have such character. Those little colourful birdhouses are smashing. And the photo of the bulbs and grasses is lovely too. What a beautiful place that must be.
