Hi everyone, what started today as a trip to the opticians to get my specs straightened(no idea why they went lopsided)and to do some food shopping turned into a coffee stop, a few hops into shops we haven't been in for..well..ages and then lunch out. We really enjoyed it though, apart from getting very hot in shops wearing our masks, and although lots of folk weren't wearing them, we are still joining those that do!
This may be a bit of a garble....please excuse any mistakes!
If you know my blog you will have seen lots of gardens over the years.
We do visit gardens at other times but there is great joy in seeing flowers in Summer.
My latest Wanderlust lesson was by Wendy Brightbill and gave me a chance to paint some of those flowers and also include my page at Art Journal Journey for my 'All Kinds Of Weather' theme. I've put a bright blue, almost cloudless sky in the background.Over the years I have really come to love roses (for a long time childhood memories of the heavy air around the rose fields on the nursery where we lived used to bring back the nauseous feeling I had when we went on evening walks)
AS you can see I have taken quite few rose photos over the Summer and more lately on some late blooms.
I had a lemon and raspberry sorbet cone - but this was to start an obsession - as you will see another day!
