Too coldPosted: May 15, 2016
It’s too cold to garden today, and definitely too cold to sketch outside, but I did both. I’m moving some perennials around and before they get planted in their new places in the beds, they had to be dug up and potted temporarily. I didn’t have enough pots to put them in, so a friend suggested garbage bags (which worked really well!). At the end of all the gardening, I dug out my sketchbook and tried to paint the plant chaos, but on a day like today (it’s about 10°C, but so windy that it feels much colder) the paint doesn’t dry. I had to come indoors halfway through to warm up and let the first wash dry, and by the time I was done my fingers had turned blue from the cold.
