First homegrown pluots & 2nd day of Art Challenge

It’s a good thing we started this 30-day Art Challenge for September because it’s been a rough month already. Thankfully, focusing on creativity has provided us with joyful moments for #OneGoodThing options.

Today’s inspiration/prompt was garden. Mama drew these wonderful sunflowers in our backyard. We loved finding this one flower nosily peeking onto the other side of the fence—even our garden is filled with nosy parkers!

I sketched and then watercolored our front garden, but I wasn’t terribly pleased with how our crepe myrtle trees looked. I’ve got more work to do on it before it is ready to share. Speaking of, Mama is now ready to share her veggie art from Day 1 (below).

This evening we discovered our first two Emerald Beaut pluots from our tree! This variety ripens late in the season and we’ve been enjoying watching them grow.
