Oh, hello!

2.5" x 3.5", colored pencil

`Ohelo kau la`au (Vaccinium calycinum), a native Hawaiian relative of blueberries, grows in the wet forests and bogs on all the main Hawaiian islands except Ni`ihau and Kaho`olawe.

PS: How boring! When I posted this at 1:30 am, my brain was jello and believe me, saying something witty or interesting was the farthest from my mind. I was thinking "pillow." LOL Thanks for stopping by and leaving me comments! They always mean a lot to me! :D Have a great day peeps!

Can you eat them? Or put them in a chocolate cake? I love the colours. So rich... and your highlights are perfect. Well done, Pokes!

Thanks Capt Elaine! I had fun with it and couldn't stop until I finished.

Mariana ... Mahalo! :D Your comments always make me smile.

Sigs, you can! I think they'd taste better in a chocolate cake (everything tastes better in a chocolate cake!). Thank you!

Renata, many thanks! Green kisses back! :)

Don't red and green always look luxious together. Great piece of pencil work JoanY. Hope you got some sleep in after posting.
