Flowered Pond

Another incredibly busy day. Shortly before work ended I drove over an hour to give a presentation on herbs -- it's the talk we were preparing for for the last month. We brought various herbs for a give-away, taste treats from herbs, and a preprestation of what we do at our school and Arboretum. It went very well, and we're hoping that the friends we've made there will visit some of our functions and Arboretum.

I painted this over the weekend, though I did manage to get in a bit of sketching over lunch. I'm not thrilled with what I attempted yesterday -- it's missing something - so I'll continue pondering about how to improve the work.

Today and tomorrow are equally busy with registration of new students, instructors meetings, departmental meetings, etc. But I should get home long before 10 pm tonight! LOL

Today is also supposed to be our final SEARING HEAT day -- I hope so. Walking, let alone working, out of doors with a heat index of well over 100F is not pleasant and extremely tiring. We're also hoping for rain again as the temperatures have continued to take much moisture from the soils.

Stay cool!

We are having rain today ... wonderful rain to green things up.

I wish I could have attended the herb presentation.

Lovely pond painting.

Nice detail to this!!! It really stands out nicely.

We are having a second day of hot, humid weather. It seems so unusual after weeks of mild weather and rain.
