This spring and summer is rivaling COVID lockdowns for disrupting the flow of outdoor life. Spring and summer for those of us living in a certain northern latitude continues to be a steady stream of rainy days. We’re trying to get our garden planted, some house repairs done and, for the most part, we sit watching the rain. The worst part is that weather has become completely unpredictable so it rains when sun is predicted and it’s sunny when it’s supposed to rain. So, while we’re making some progress, it comes from saying “It looks like it’s not going to rain for the next few hours, I’m going to…” Weird that.
Anyways, I sat on the deck, watching the rain (very pleasant) and decided to sketch one of an army of Impatiens that are destined to form a defense against grass invaders to a flock of hostas.
It’s been raining all day so I thought I’d write a blog post. Hope you like the plant sketch.
