The Little Lemon Tree
This is a sketch from Desiree, done several weeks ago now during the tail end of autumn. It's part of her own garden and amazingly colourful considering the time of year. A real reminder to me as to how mild the Californian climate is compared to that of the UK. Everything looks wonderfully lush.
I am particularly jealous of her little lemon tree, something we can't grow remotely well here in England.
I have seen photos of Desiree's garden and its stunning. I think her love for her plants clearly spills over into this painting and i am so happy it's now part of my postcard collection. Thank you Desiree!
