For St. Patrick's - The Greens
It's rather overcast today with a chill wind - but I still wanted to go outdoors and sketch. I remembered it was St. Patrick's Day, and though I'm all Italian-American (not a lick of the Irish in me, I'm afraid) I thought I'd sketch something green.
A quick look around the property and I spied the greens of my herb bed -- all in various hues of the color! From the rosemary (in bloom!) to newly flowered violets, to the crinolined agastache (that'll have purple blooms this summer) and the bright green of chives ... here is my bit of Irish for good Ol' St. Pat!
