A visit to a delightful garden

I sketch with a group of friends/artists on Tuesday mornings.  In warm weather we are outside, sometimes even when it rains.  This week we had an opportunity to visit another friend’s beautiful gardens. 

Fortunately she has a porch with a view because rain it did and hard.  Here are a few shots I took before the rain started…. She had a variety of cone flowers, different colors in different beds…

And there were several spots to sit and enjoy a cuppa, or journal, or sketch.  This is just one of many.

A variety of sculpture, varied and scattered.  I only got this one before the rains started.

And finally, my view from her porch….

We have been invited back and will certainly take advantage of the invite, hopefully on a sunny day.
