Annual Lupine sketch time, out my back door!
Each year my image is different!
(see lupine blog posts in June, 2017 & June, 2016.)
Minute to minute the lupines transform in appearance.
Above, just before the bright Eastern sun hit this morning,
just before they went from soft misty blue-lavenders
to warmer golden tones,
not as distinguished from their surrounding greens.
My seasonal work hours at the museum have increased
so when I had a free Friday I reveled in it,
sketching at the Farmer's Market & then,
out the window
of the locally celebrated bakery,
Moonbat City Baking Co.
The pastries & coffee, divine, & the happy atmosphere~Wow!
I overheard more than once,
"It doesn't get any better than this!"
The owner Michelle sets the tone greeting customers
the chartreuse walls & the light from windows lift spirits.
The café is small,
but it welcomes lively visits & conversations,
& folks at tables doing their own thing with computers
or, in my case, bien sûr,
with my sketchbook.
