water colour - leaves

 A water colour of some leaves, Judas tree leaves to be exact. 
I don't think I have ever heard of such a tree before, or seen one in real life.
As you can see, it actually doesn't look like the illustration in the book I made them after.
I must just continue to practice.

The book is called "Trees and Shrubs of Britain", and I found it at the local flea market.


I am at my parents.

Which meant another trip with the cat down here, went sort of okay. She still puked and stuff, but most of the trip she was much more well and calm than she has been before.
Gotta look at the positive side of things ;)

There have been a lot of cooking and baking.
- Especially some Swedish cardamom cookies by Rachel Allen, that went down very well!
Yum Yum.

It is soo hot right now in Denmark.
If there is something I hate, then it is 30 Celsius degrees. honestly I prefer 15-20 Celsius degrees (or colder. I just love weather where you can wear cardigans, or at least not sweat like a pig, and be able to keep just an ounce of dignity- and drink tea of course!

Off on a holiday early tomorrow. Germany.
Bringing some knitting, crocheting, and "Persuasion" and "Sense and sensibility" as audiobooks. Also some books, a Nick Hornby, and some Miss Marple. What a brilliant basis for a holiday :)

Happy holiday to you, when you get to it.
