I was able to find a small window of time today to sketch some roses I cut from the backyard. (I keep trying to adjust the colors a bit so they look more like the actual sketch, but I'm starting to drive myself crazy. I'm going to let it be.)

Sketching at Ladew Topiary Gardens

This morning Molly, Michael, and I went to Ladew Topiary Gardens to do some sketching. Here are some pictures of us and our sketches. Michael got there first and set up at the Croquet Court (no.5 on the map). We were there for about two hours, but could have stayed all day. The weather and gardens were beautiful and we had so much fun!
