Winter in the Nelspruit area is dry and dusty, no rain having fallen for months. Grass and other vegetation is brown and dry. When you see a small patch of green vegetation in this vast sea of brown, you can be certain that water is present, usually in the form of a spring. I painted this painting a long while ago and was rather surprised to see that I had written 'whose leaf does not wither', on the back of the painting. I must have been thinking of Psalm No 1 at the time.
