I originally drew this for my mother as a card for her birthday.
The woman is a manic gardener. Her garden is one big fist of flora – plentiful varieties jammed into together and bursting out into the world. It's wonderful.
The birds seem to like it too. The garden is home to many native birds and quite possibly the odd brown snake.
Mum also has a bird bath generous enough for backstroke laps. Naturally, the birds behave like it's summer all year round.
They just have trouble striking up a decent conversation with the watering can.
Megan Hills is a cartoonist who has never gotten into gardening as 'therapy' (more as a food source that doesn't involve shopping carts). Find out more about Megan.
