My dear friend, Lisa (http://www.flickr.com/photos/zoom-in-tight/) kindly allowed me to use her photograph for this sketch. I love her photographs and she never fails to inspire me with her keen eye and wonderful photography!
I'll admit I didn't achieve any looseness here - as I was focused on the textures and the varying wood tones .. but I loved the feel of her photo and the sense it gave me of a gardener who left her garden only for a moment!
The new president's welcome went well yesterday - and the day ended with an informal luncheon and our staff picking a few of the remaining blueberries - then home for the July 4th holidays.
We've little planned except a bit of chores and rest. Peaches are in at the farmer's market and I need to get some jam made for holiday gifts.
We're also in great need of rain - it's been 2 weeks since any significent rainfall, and the plants and vegetables are definitely suffering. I was watering last night the moment I got out of my car - even before unpacking!
Have a great day!
