Brave flower – small stone 22

I had to wrap myself in a scarf and crunch across the frosty lawn to find my subject for today’s sketch. Although the mist was lifting and the sun breaking through, it was cold in the garden this morning. And yet the camellia bush was covered with flowers, some just buds, others fully open. Delicate frothy pale pink tutus might seem inappropriate for the freezing temperatures, but this flower is obviously stronger than it appears. 

Not unlike the hundreds of thousands of women (men too) who yesterday showed up in cities around the world; marching, whatever the weather, to express themselves in a chilling political climate.
