Fullerton Arboretum

My friend and sketching buddy, Ginger, is back in town for awhile. We spent a lovely afternoon on Friday sketching at the Fullerton Arboretum. I thought I would sketch more of the plants but the rooster was so colorful and who could pass up a sunbathing turtle.
We followed the path around and found another enticing place to sit for a spell. It was another of the ponds and as we sketched, the water birds and ducks flew in and out making wonderful splashing water sounds. After awhile it was time for lunch and margaritas.
A very enjoyable day.

I love them all but those leaves are just gorgeous! How many Bateman books have you gone through? I am almost finished with my first one (thanks to you) but I use other sketchbooks so it is taking me longer.
