Well, we're halfway through the month, and I admit that it's a becoming a challenge to keep up with this drawing-a-day project. But I'm wondering about you readers, too -- how do you feel about art vs. written posts, or the occasional month of all-the-same (haiku, small stones, drawings, etc.) I never know for sure how these things come across, so please let me know.
Anyway, I'm taking a day off - or at least it looks that way at 3:00 pm this afternoon!
This morning Jonathan and I went out to Jardin Jasmine, the nicest and most extensive nursery/pépinière I know of on Montreal island, with our friend Michel from the community garden.
It was really fun - both the ride there and the browsing through their fabulous grounds and greenhouses. It's always hard to restrain the desire to buy everything, because it's like a candy store...but we were both pretty reasonable. None of my Pacific Giant delphinium came up this year - don't know why - so I bought replacement plants, and a yellow clematis, and some coleus for the terrace. Michel bought some wonderful things for the garden he creates and tends each year outside his apartment building, which brightens our entire street. Mostly it was just great to be among all the beautiful plants with dear friends who love this annual display of color and beauty and variety just as much as I do.
