Kangaroo Paw

It was a lovely sunny spring day yesterday and I spent some time on my balcony, taking photos of my plants.

I love my kangaroo paw blooms – they are unusual, but very lovely.

Nice to draw too…

Another one from my balcony – I love the furriness, which is not normally so apparent. That’s the beauty of zooming in.

Visit Lisa at Macro Monday for more macro shots.

Awesome! You made a kangaroo paw etegami! Did you mean it to be an etegami? It is beautiful. :o

Evelyn said...

@dosankodebbie: Thanks, did not mean to make it an etegami :). Just a drawing in my sketchbook. I had to go to your site to check (again) what an etegami really is.
