Julie draws!!! A miracle!

The inspiration for Cactus Monday...continued new growth on my salvaged prickly cactus plant (started from one pad from that chopped down tree in the neighborhood).

I came inside and took out my gel pens...found my homemade sketchbook... (it was buried in a bunch of art crap thrown into a cubby for months now...(sadly)...

And scribbled out this little pad showing some new growth! She is a cute little growth area showing promise for a new pad, and many more for years to come! I had this thought that I wrote out next to it...how can anyone be sad when they see something like new growth??? Impossible!



Happy Cactus Monday!!!

Great drawing!
So nice that you started drawing aagain and took your art supplies from the cubby.
Isn't that wonderful that that pad from the sadly cut tree starts to grow again, it is the circle of life!

Happy cactus Monday!
