In Bloom

Last week I stopped at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale. It felt like spring and was warm enough to be out of my car sketching. I looked for a magnolia tree in bloom, but the one that I could find only had buds. I'll have to go back and see if it is blooming yet, but by the time I get there it will probably be too late. lol

The arboretum does a wonderful job with tulips, but there weren't too many that were opened yet.

Tracy is having fun if you want to visit.


  1. Joan, these are so fresh, simple and just beautiful. Viva la Spring

  2. I always think it is a shame that so many spring blossoms don't seem to last very long. These are lovely sketches Joan.

    1. LOL In my world they would keep blooming. Thanks, Val!
