..today, she is a budding fruit.. when I drew her, she was a lovely flower.. waiting for the eggplant..

It is a delight seeing the garden bloom and then change into little fruits and then they change their colors. Tanush and I keep track of the growth of the couple of plants that we have potted in our patio.. Strawberries have bloomed too, and soon we are going to be eating some of them - that is, if Tanush doesn't squish them before we harvest them!

This is a lovely plant Salini, and the fruit is just as gorgeously deep purple too. Don't forget to water it profusely to get the fruit to a reasonable size.
Nice journal entry.

Thank you Frank and Frame! And thanks also for the suggestion of watering more.. We hadn't really changed the amount of water we were giving these plants even when they bore fruits, and we had been wondering why the strawberries are so small.. It should be water! I'll take care of this one at least!

Great page! It feels gentle and lovely and the leaves are beautifully captured.

Thank you Ruca.. Now, we can see a tiny white head popping out of the fruit bud...
