I have been talking about sketching in Janet and Robert’s garden for awhile now, and we made it happen today. I rattled over the country roads and up a steep drive on my beast of a ShopRider, basket full of sketch stuff. I thought I might spend a couple of hours, drawing the clusters of grapes on the arbor, but it turned into a most wonderful afternoon – the three of us gathered around a still-life of freshly picked things, either from their garden or a local stand.

We had food and a shade umbrella and the blue sky was streaked with horsetail clouds.

Five lovely hours we all sat and drew, the murmur of India Runner ducks in the background.

So delightfully peaceful.
