Three succulents

I have an extensive collection of succulents that come into the sun room in winter and liven the place up. At the farmers market there is a girl who tempts me every second week with new delights. Another collection I suppose.
I have had one of those days, in which everything I was going to do has not worked out, cant find things that I should be able to lay my hands on have gone heaven knows where.
It poured with rain this morning we had a very short sharp and hard thunderstorm in the early hours of the morning and now the sun is out.
So I sat in the sun room in the sun for a few minutes and sketched these.
Pen and pencil in my small A6 sketchbook.

We all have those kind of days! I love succulents - used to have a lot years ago and when I see them now in garden centres I wonder whether to start a collection again.
Sit in the sun, Penny, and let the world drift over you - tomorrow is another day.

Who doesnt have days when nothing seems to work? The best thing is to do exactly what you are doing, sketch and enjoy the sun.
I take my dog and we go walking. Today I posted the wild beach near me where we start our days. After being there nothing can affect me, I become immune to the everyday grind.
