Planter Power

It is such a lovely day I have been sitting outside painting. I did this watercolor & micron pen of the planter sitting outside the Casa. I just love the way Dragonwing Begonias dangle those blooms. They bloom so well in the shade of my back garden. Also in this pot is verbena and icicles (helichrysum thianschanicum).

This is really lovely Lisa. I love flowers and gardening and the composition here is super. The vase doesn't take from the flowers either.
