~ Henry Miller

Raindrops on Cape Reed Grass in my garden (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa). Restionaceae, also called restiads, is the botanical name for a family of rush-like flowering plants native to the Southern Hemisphere, namely South Africa and Australia.

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.
