On Sunday I went to the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale. As homework for Marc Taro Holmes's class we were supposed to create a themed page that tells a story. The arboretum has a section with a farm that grows food for the needy. You can see the big, white barn, I started with that. Then I went to sketch the sunflowers which were definitely past their prime, but I don't mind them droopy. There were tomatoes on a vine and an enclosed area with lots of chickens, who really didn't stay still at all, especially if they thought someone came over and might have food. Then it was a race to that side of the enclosure.
