Fullerton Arboretum

Last Wednesday Eula, Yukon and I went to the Fullerton Arboretum for some sketching and painting. My mom was here and went with us with her sudoku book. It was a nice warm day with a cool breeze. We brought sack lunches and had a marvelous time. It's a great place with so many wonderful things to sketch. Architecture, plants, animals, ponds and lots of shade.
There are garden patches with wonderful veggies and flowers. I sketched the rhubarb for my mom, one of her favorites. The Cactus and Century plants were in bloom and were spectacular. They have quite the variety of cacti. We are going back on Weds. the 23rd if you're in the area. See you around 10 a.m. at the Victorian House. Just look for sketchbooks and join the fun!

I've visited your site from time to time to see your sketching. Because I like your work, I sent you an award if you have time to check it out on my blog. Participation is optional. Thanks for sharing your work. By the way, how do you know what a post insulator and bus bar are?

I've never heard of the fullerton arboretum! Great sketches. I love your approach to your sketches and just love when I got to see your work in person.
Now that I don't work anymore; maybe once the weather cools we can get together again for a sketch day!
