John Steinbeck once wrote, ‘Change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like a stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass.’

These wildflowers have been blooming on our smallholding the whole summer, making bright pink splashes against the blue-green grass all along our fence.

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.

    I love the frilly look of these. I keep forgetting that you’re in the middle of summer over there unlike us who are covered in snow & frigid temps!

  • Thanks Marsha! But soon the tables will be turned and you’ll be posting all the gorgeous flowers!
