Illustration Friday: grow


I got this beautiful hanging plant (fucsia) in spring and since then I had lots of great time around it. I think what I like most about it' never static - it spins all the time - slower-faster, almost invisibly - but all the time ;) And I like the abundance of color in it. And that it attracts all sorts of life - a few days ago I had my tee under it and a hummingbird called upon my plant and stayed long enough to sketch it - so here you go - my story for this week's Illustration Friday them - "Grow" ;)
