Like daffodils and crocuses, wallflowers also bloom in spring time. Although wallflowers are quite small, their bright colours light up the garden.
…blue, according to a poem I heard when I was young. Here it goes:
Roses are red Violets are blue Sugar is sweet But not as sweet as you
Awww… so sweet 🙂
However, the violets or violas I planted in my back garden are not blue. They are yellowish and purplish.
Well, they come in so many colours. Just like roses, not all of them are red. Another name commonly used to refer to the same flowers is pansy. Although there are differences between violets and pansies, they are in the same group of species. And undeniably, they have amazingly striking colours.
After a couple of months in cold weather, this birch tree showed signs of life. It is always nice and heartwarming to see fresh green buds appearing on an otherwise bald tree. I guess this is why springtime is always associated with the hope of a new beginning in life.
Just like my cherry blossom, this drawing was done in two stages. First, I drew the bare tree and then added on the buds and new leaves.
Here is the detailed drawing of the bud and new leaves,
and a couple of new leaves on a twig.
