Flowers to come home to, a koala while I was away

When I arrived home from my camping holiday recently, I was pleasantly surprised by a few blooms that showed up…

The icing on the cake I bought this geranium for its lovely leaves, and did know that it will flower. I am thrilled, and what lovely flowers.

A holiday photo : this koala lives in or around our camp ground, and is not afraid of humans. It was about 5 feet from us when this photo was taken! We spotted 2 of them. Lovely little creatures but they were very noisy at night – their sounds akin to snoring but 50 times louder!

Some illustrations

It was quiet at our camp ground. Besides animal watching (lots of birds), reading and enjoying the country air, I had lots of fun time with my watercolour and pens.

I completed these little pieces during the holidays.

I enjoyed your post very much. Your artwork has a lovely style, and your photos were very enjoyable. I would be very happy to have a koala in our campground but I would probably have to buy some ear plugs :) That flower is also very beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
