Come and gonePosted: May 23, 2022
Summer made an appearance while I was in Santa Fe. It was spring before I left (only a few hyacinths blooming), and it’s spring again, but in the interim there was a heatwave in Montreal, with temperatures exceeding 30°C on some days. Tulips and daffodils bloomed without me, and now I am left with shrivelling stalks waiting to be pruned. Fortunately my favourite early perennials are still here for me to enjoy — lilies-of-the-valley, bleeding hearts and forget-me-nots. I have a whole sketchbook of Santa Fe scenes to post, but that can wait. If it gets warmer again, these flowers will be gone too. Sketched in a Handbook Watercolour Journal, 9″ x 12″.
