The blossoms are beautiful. Are they fragrant too? I keep imagining that any blossoms in the citrus family would smell delicious. I really like that way you depicted them too.

They way these feathered friends and fantastic fungi appear on the paper, it is as though they were waiting for your hand to reveal them. See how they all have their attention on you, Geninne?
