CASSIA TREE, 6.5x6.5" watercolor, plein air, ©Diane Mannion
Backyard Plein Air
A friend gave me a six inch high cassia seedling about three years ago, it's now a huge tree in full bloom. Attracts lots of yellow butterflies and perfect for hanging orchids in the shade. Also difficult painting subject. The plant on the lower left is a myers lemon tree growing in a flower pot and loaded with lemons beginning to ripen.
