Then this morning we went out to lunch with our friends Mel and Heide. After lunch we drove up to Manitowoc to the Gardens Along the Lake. It was 48 degrees and drizzling. Could not believe the change in the weather but we tried to make the best of it. Had to take a photo of these old trees with branches of strange shapes.
This one layed on the arbor. (Notice the parking lot. We were the only ones there in this awful weather.)
Most of the flowers were just beginning to bloom. I loved this varigated leaf yellow iris. I have to find these somewhere.
The Koi pond and waterfall was just beginning to have lily pads and blooms in it.
These dark red velvety iris were stunning.
Mel and Bob were troopers with collars up and hands in their pockets.
When I got home and headed to the studio, my buddies Ozzie and Watson were waiting at the top of the steps for me. They almost match!
I did some sketching of radishes....
and a Kohlrabi. Then I cleaned up the studio which needed it. Perhaps my final 3 twelve by twelve's will be one of these.
