The Dingle again
Weeping willows in winter
Unknown beautiful flowers
If only I could capture the fragrance of these flowers... they bloom only in winter and they smell heavenly! The rest of the year, they have dull green, sharp-edged leaves that scratch unwary passers-by who get too close to it. (I discovered both these facts myself - by hands-on experience, shall we say). Dunno what the plant is called.

Quiet place by River Severn - watercolour
I wanted to put up a few photos of places around Shrewsbury but the albums appear to be hiding... so pending the discovery of those photos, I decided to post a photo of a water-colour that I did last year (while learning the basics of water-colour painting).
Anyway, this is my favourite place by the river in the park/play area/open grounds called The Quarry, in Shrewsbury. The exercise of artistic licence has removed any traces of benches by the riverbank, and also of people sitting there! :) I like my favourite place to be peaceful and without pesky kids fooling around - if only in my imagination.
PS. Anybody at all genuinely artistic - please reserve your comments! I'm aware of my limitations as a painter!
(Princess, this goes ESPECIALLY for you, you multi-talented multi-faceted multi-personality! ;) )
