Red, Red Rose Hips

Watercolor sketch of rose hips

Red in Autumn
by Elizabeth Gould from Festivals, Family and Food

Tipperty-toes, the smallest elf,
Sat on a mushroom by himself,
Playing a little tinkling tune
Under the big round harvest moon;
And this is the song that Tipperty made
To sing to the little tune he played.

“Red are the hips, red are the haws,
Red and gold are the leaves that fall,
Red are the poppies in the corn,
Red berries on the rowan tall;
Red is the big round harvest moon,
And red are my new little dancing shoon.”

    hello! greetings from Turkey, İstanbul

    I have discovered your blog through some recipe probably, but what drew my attention most is your watercolor paintings! I have been longing to start water coloring for a long time but still havent been able to complete the necessary equipment for it:/ but you give me courage!

    greetings from Turkey!


  2. Surffing among gardens I found you.
    What a bliss this little tinkling tune.
    Thank you
