Between the rain drops

A group of intrepid sketchers from Urban Sketchers Tacoma braved some occasional but brief showers to sketch around the Soos Creek Botanical Garden yesterday.


Carolyn had her own solution to rain protection!

During a rain shower, I sheltered under an tent in the vegetable garden area. I sketched what was in view: bright flowers and a horse trailer. Learned from the Master Gardeners who grow the vegetables that they donate what they grow to a local food bank. Today they estimated about 50 pounds of fresh fruit and veg was going out to them!

I couldn’t resist the little red wagons and pumpkins. It’s must really be Fall if the pumpkins are out.

Lots more photos, particularly of flowers.
