What you might ask has this to do with my walking and sketching? Well it is a sketch and although this is the one flowering in my sun room at the moment I did see one of these when I went walking around the nursery today.
Actually I walked at least three times today as I looked in the mirror and didnt like what I saw. I walked the dogs, I walked all around the shops on my trip into town and I walked along the "old" road and I did sketch something there but Jake put up the neighbours cattle and wouldnt come back so I didnt take that any further I was too busy getting him back to the toyota.
The old road is the one that was flooded the night I went into labour with my youngest son and we nearly didnt get to the hospital in time. Several years later they put the new road up the hill and I dont think the old road has flooded much since.

I don't think I've ever consciously seen one of these - I must have a look next time I'm at the nursery. I like the way the little yellow bit in your drawing is an extra treat if you look carefully - otherwise you miss it.

We sell bromiliads for $5 a pot and sold a few lately. They all flowered in the last month, all at the same time. A strange flower - like a spear - that wilts rather quickly. The leaves on the ones we have are striped.
