Cornell Farms Inspiration

This week, our sketch group visited Cornell Farms. The wind blew, it was cold to the bone and my motivation to draw didn't materialize. Out came the camera. The bicycle inspired me to get my bike out, clean it, put air in the tires. Now it's ready to ride this fore casted, warm weather weekend.
A time to plant pots and sinks
Spruce up the flamingos and enjoy the bright colors blooming...

Inside, I finished another felted bag with a kumihimo cord. The wool fibers warm cold hands and make me feel good.

Great post, Paula! I love the colors of the bike and the flowers, and your writing is as sprightly as the colors are bright!

Have fun on your bike this weekend!

Thanks, Gwen and Lily, for your ocmments. I completed my bicycle maintenance and bought a new helmet with a visor. Yesterday, I took a wonderful ride through the neighborhood and enjoyed the ducks, blooming rhododendrons and azelias. It feels so good to be outdoors.
