Bird Feeder and Red Geraniums

Daily Practice

This was sketched from a photo from last year's garden. The birdbath doesn't hold water, so I've converted it to a bird feeder. THIS year, the flower bed is taken over by black eyed Susans and purple cone flowers...

Monticello was fabulous .... and we head home today -- tired from taking in as much as we could, lots of walking in very hot temperatures, and lots of chatting! LOL We learned so much and have ideas for the Arboretum to incorporate with some of the other ideas gleamed from our trips ...we're going to be even busier!!

I'll post some photos of Monticello tomorrow as I can ...

Looks like we're in for some storms en route to home, slowing the long trip...

Stay safe!

Love the contrast in colors and what a great idea to convert the bath into a feeder! Glad your trip was successful. It's so hot here too!
Hugs,

Now, that's a bird feeder! Love the composition and colors. The geranium leaves are especially nice.

Great color in the flowers!!! It's been storming here on and off. Nothing like our Long Island Expressway with lightning, thunder, and heavy rain. Hope your drive back was good!

This is a stunning composition, Lin! I love the vivid reds against the soft greens.
