Bank Holiday Weekend: Drawing in the Garden

Well, thank goodness for a bit of decent weather. Bank Holidays are usually a guarantee of rain, but this time we managed enough sun to warrant suncream!

In the garden

On Saturday John had a stag do from midday until the wee small hours. Somehow, I found myself doing all the chores round the house - who got the best deal there? I slapped myself into shape by mid afternoon, and took some time to sit in the back garden and do the sketch above. I keep forgetting to use my proper moleskin watercolour book though.

On Sunday we mostly hung about, lazed and pottered. It was so wonderfully hot. As you can see below, John was still working hard...


I'd forgotten about the holiday bit, so had intended to do at least a bit of work anyway, but it was far, far too lovely. So we went for a picnic in the park with friends, then drove to the garden centre, where I bought lots of plants, which I thoroughly enjoyed potting up for the rest of the afternoon. I finished just before it started to rain.

A VERY successful bank holiday then, and I bet you had the better deal without the hangover! I lOve that drawing by the way. :)
