"Now Blooming..."

in my back, side, and front yards...

...she is called "Mexican Bird of Paradise"...

...and she will continue to grow and bloom all summer...
...and get this big by September!!!
And...here she is again...but so very much smaller
appearing as part of my spread
in our fabulous Maruman Sketchbook exchange
which was started two years ago
this week!
What an 17,566 mile adventure we had!
Check on this Maruman link to see all of our work!
Have a colorful
and bright blooming Tuesday...:)

Every production of an artist
should be the expression of an adventure of his soul.”
William Somerset Maugham

This MX BOP is absolutely stunning. I have never seen it before. I love your drawing of it too. You captured that blazing orange of the blossom.
