Prunus subhirtella 'Autumnalis'

Prunus subhirtella 'Autumnalis'

I made another watercolour today. This is a Prunus in my garden. It flowers from November until April. I made a coloured pencil drawing of it once and I like the tree so much, I thought I'd try a watercolour too. I love my Winsor & Newton "Opera Rose"....

You manage to bring together two of my favorite things ... plants and art! Thanks for sharing Siggy! (Er, do you mind me calling you that, cuz it's starting to stick!? heh).
