I’ve got to say that COVID isolation is both positive and negative for me. It’s great that both my wife and daughter are home all the time, a real bonus for a retired old guy like myself. It also gives me some time to get a bunch of house repairs done, a long list of which has accumulated during my two years of bad health. And COVID isolation my wife time to rebuild and work in her garden which was neglected as she ferried me to doctors for those two years.
In spite of my telling her that it’s “not my hobby,” I’ve been spending more time with garden tools than with my fountain pens. So I apologize for the lack of blog posts, but all this stuff is just how we’re coping with the stress of life in 2020. COVID isolation has disrupted my “daily sketch” regime in a major way. Oops.
Here’s a sketch of our garden staging area. By that I mean that we went to a garden center, filled our vehicle with a jungle of plants and many of them are shoved into this area as they wait for garden beds to be created for them. I drew this the day we finished a couple raised bed vegetable gardens and moved a whole bunch of plants from this area to their new home. Hope you like it.
