Yesterday was an 'Early Taste of Summer' spring day, and Sue (www.flickr.com/photos/loveitaly) and I spent a few hours at the Sarch P. Duke Gardens! OH MY GOSH!! I could have stayed there for days!! EVERYWHERE we looked was a view worthy of painting. We never got past the first garden we came to: The White Garden.
The birds serenaded us with song, the flowers in bloom - hyacinths, tulips, white daffodils, grape hyacinth, etc. wafted sweet scents as we sat on a bench to sketch. We were in the amphitheatre area where we also enjoyed the childrens dance and song performance, and visitors to the gardens just kept coming and coming!
