Finger grass (Digitaria Eriantha) by 

Nothing belongs to you
of what there is,
of what you take,
you must share.

- Chief Dan George

I’ve got some old soft-cover books that I use to record little sketches of grasses, weeds and indigenous flowers on our smallholding (Tarlton, South Africa). I found this finger grass, which is a palatable grass that is regarded as one of the best natural and cultivated pastures (the best known cultivar is Smuts finger grass) in southern Africa. It remains palatable until late in the winter and is often utilised as standing hay.

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.
