One of my favourite plants in our garden, right from when we first moved in, was this lovely bush by the front drive that had the most gorgeous pink flowers.
We chose the colours of the other plantings based on that lovely colour, and the colours of some of the trees.
Last time I drew manuka, I drew the white flowers of a different tree. You can read about that here:
âDrawing the âmanuka bush
This design was basically just a case of methodically creating a series of branches, then building them together into a bush that would repeat nicely.
A new Redbubble product
I was really excited to get my order of socks from Redbubble, although at first, I was a bit concerned, because the printing looked blurry, and the size of the socks seemed really small - but once the design was stretched out over my foot, which it fit perfectly, it looked much better. I was very relieved!
