Or as my daughter spells it ‘scech’! A wonderful pastime. All you need is a little notebook, a pencil and a few colours and hey presto, you’re doing it! E’s ‘scechis’ are masterpieces. Today an agapanthus and a rather unusual tree called an ‘idesia polycarpa’, both found residing in our University Botanic Gardens.  It’s a lovely way to spend an afternoon. The achievement evident in the smiles. AND great on a rainy day too. There’s many an interesting ‘still life’ to be found around the home. Piece of fruit anyone ???!!!!!!!! Xxx
