Another Day at Armstrong

Last weekend my friend, Liz, wanted to try her hand at
sketching. I suggest going to our local Armstrong Nursery and sketching there. We had a great time and she really jumped right in. Way to go Liz!

Of course there are always great plants and flowers but there are also lots of interesting architectural items and fun decorations. It is always so colorful.

And don't forget those fun and funky garden ornaments. I really enjoy putting together interesting things on a page. I end up with some wild compositions and the page tells it's own story.

Beautiful sketches, all of them. You're lucky. I asked one day to sketch the fish in our local nusrery and I was told to ask permission by written letter!

I have such fond memories of playing at the local nursery when I was little while my parents shopped for plants! I might have to join you sometime to sketch there!
