Journal -- Spend a most delightful day at Duke Gardens this week -- the weather was incredible! Temps hovering around 80F, flowers all abloom, the scent of violets everywhere! Parking was challenging as there were several events going on at the Gardens, so by the time we walked to the heart of the Gardens and sketched a few things, time on my meter had run out. I sketched these on site, but wound up painting them at home. Definitely SPRING!
