Early, every morning when I open our front door, this little scene greets me. Must do something about that dripping tap.
Wishing all American sporty friends a great Super Bowl today.

Happiness is a leaking faucet….just as you sketched it.
Yip! I reckon it is, Hudson – thanks
I have one as well. It’s been dripping for 15 years. It stopped once, then after a day or so started again. And I thought, ‘now that’s more like it’. Besides, there are far greater things to worry about then a leaking tap.
They say it’s the small things Hudson – the small things! Lol
I bet the plants love it…!
Perhaps that’s why I’ve left fixing it for so long. Thanks for the gift of an excuse, Carolyn
Wow – the detail is remarkable. If I knew anything about sketching I would use appropriate words. Since I don’t, I’ll just say Gee Whiz.
Aaaah, a man of many talents Don … even if fixing dripping taps isn’t one of them
Thanks Jacquie. I’m going to have to learn that talent -Lol
I’m so glad you decided to share your sketches with us. Well done.
what a sweet sketch you have created…
Wonderful detail! The plant likes the dripping tap though.
Thanks Fiona. Maybe we should keep the tap dripping – Lol
Don’t stop the dripping tap–it’s a wonderful metaphor.
I don’t think I will Marilyn – it is a wonderful metaphor. Never saw it at the time. Thank you.
Lovely sketch! We have one that leaks slightly when the outdoor system is turned on for the summer. The wasps collect the water off the leaves.

I’m sure you’ll not be fixing it, Wendy – what would the wasps do?
I love this piece! What a delightful water spout, and it looks like copper? Especially gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talent with us here: your writing, photography AND sketchbook treasures. I enjoy every visit to your wonderful blog. Blessings, Gina
Thanks Gina. Your words of encouragement are really appreciated.
