Kitten drawing

I bought a set of watercolor pencils and even though I did not use them with water for this drawing, I just wanted to see what they were all about. Next time I can use them in a whole different way. For this kitten I just wanted to draw with them as colored pencils.

This is the size. He is a thank you gift for a friend.


Here is an update on my little lemon tree:

He's got his first leaves :)

Oh happy day!

I have been trying for two months to sprout a lemon tree from a seed. My grandfather grew them, and I saw this posting on how to do it, so I went and bought a lemon.....It didn't have any seeds! I thought...... monsanto.......yeah yeah.....I could not find an organic lemon, bought another one and it had a seed in it! Oh seed......what are the odds...... well it got to the point where I didn't even bother to turn the grow light on any more. (I know.....a watched pot...) Tonight just for the heck of it, I looked in the pot (it said to put a plastic breathable cover on it like a little greenhouse, I couldn't see through it) and......

LOOK!!!! There he is :) :) I had totally given up.

A little sproutling!!!!! I could not believe my eyes!!!
Off to bed now, a happy new mama!
