Golden Rain Tree - Koelreuteria
I cut a few pieces to sketch ... what an incredible tree!
The day with Laura and Sue was much fun! We spent some time at the Ackland Museum for exhibits featuring water and the garden. I was somewhat disappointed in the garden exhibit -- I suppose my expectations were different than what was presented -- but the water exhibit was VERY interesting - especially as we discussed the various pieces.
We endulged ourselves with a huge gelato for lunch (which should have also been my dinner - but oh my was it fabulous!!!
While our intention was to sketch a bit, somehow we didn't get around to it at the time ... nonetheless, the company was terrific and the outing most enjoyable!
Today we're off to the Cantaloupe Festival, then dinner with some friends. I hope to get in a few sketches ...
