Hi Salix, I love this drawing! The saturated colors and the whimsical setting are really eye-catching! You are very talented.

Thanks for your post on my blog. In answer to your question about the Whirling Butterflies gaura, I have several of them in full sun all day, and a few others that get varying degrees of sun and shade. They're all thriving and don't seem to be picky about being in heavy clay soil (which is all I've got!. I've noticed that the older flowers turn totally pink even though they start out white, so that's something to keep in mind.

My friend the neophyte gardener is on her second year with these and she reports that once established they don't need much water. I bet you'll really like these!
