I hadn't been to Peninsula Park in decades and we picked a perfect day to go. It was warm and the scents of the roses and the linden trees were intoxicating. Volunteers were manicuring the 5,000 rose bushes, children played in the fountain, the bees buzzed and the birds sang. It was perfect.
I hadn't sketched much lately, so I decided to play it safe and make several little sketches--all on a 5"x8" page.
After the park, we stopped to get freshly poured honey from a local beekeeper. The bees had been feasting on linden blossoms, so the honey was sweet and mild--and perfect.
