Yesterday, I met with ASk at the home of a recently departed friend, colleague and student. Marsha was known for her beautiful garden, warm smile and generous personality. The sketchers cherish every opportunity they have had to enjoy the grounds at Happy Valley Farms and record it in their sketchbooks. I know that you will see what I mean when you view the brief record of that marvelous day in my photos below. More about Happy Valley Farm and the day of sketching with Anacortes Sketchers here.

We wandered through the shade in the orchard or by the pond. Apples are beginning to fall from the old trees. Every once in a while, one of us would pick one up and place it on the bench.
