    so lovely!
    our perfume here is autumn, humus and cider and piney scents, and, when a four-legged saunters by, a bit of musk.

    Melia Azedarach….what an exotic name. It has mellifluous overtones. Your drawing does justice to the delicacy of the flowers.

    Oh, the lovely White Cedar! I think every farm house I’ve ever lived in had one, except for now… Though a one acre block can hardly be called a farm, so that’s my excuse. Beautifully drawn, Mo.

    And here i thought you were introducing us to an exotic new artist… 🙂

    I envy botanists and gardeners in Australia…………..

  9. Love the delicacy of your flower drawing, in contrast with the size of that huge tree! I forgot it was spring down there on the other side of the world… thanks for sharing some of it!
