I bought a lemon

About eleven years ago I bought a lemon tree. It did nothing until recently when it produced two or three of these:-Now it is suddenly producing magnificent lemons! Strange!

What kind of soil is this tree growing in???

Good old Newlands soil. I am not one to use much fertiliser, just lots of mulch. I think it may have hit a rock. Amazingly there were segments of lemon inside that lot! Strangely the lemons it is now producing are normal.

Cheval Voyeur Farm

The last few "quickies" from Cheval Voyeur Farm.


This was a quick oil while there was still quite a lot of water around.

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.

Centre of the Book

We spent two Tuesday mornings in the Company Gardens in central Cape Town. The first day I tried to paint this and failed dismally. The next week I used charcoal in an attempt to capture the architectural beauty of the building. Now I must try to paint it again! I love charcoal!
