W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm
Geraniums in a pot on my patio (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa)

‘Observe yon sweet geranium flower.
How straight upon its stalk it stands,
And tempts our violating hands,
Whilst the soft bud, as yet outspread,
Hangs down its pale declining head.
Yet soon as it is ripe to blow,
the stems shall rise, the head shall glow.’

Extract from ‘The Geranium’ by  RICHARD BRINSLEY SHERIDAN

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.

    Lovely image Maree, delightfully tolerant plants in this country, only the frost kills them off. Alma x

  • Thank you alma! Yeah, in winter my bathroom and laundry looks like a hothouse with all the many plants I have to bring in. The ‘black’ frost we get here in Tarlton is a real killer.
