We decided that the last Saturday of term should be a bit of an outing for everyone one to join in.

Luckily the weather was not the usual Easter downpour, but a blue day with plenty of sun. Off we went on the ferry and made our way to the – where else – the cafe. A good meeting point for the others within the Botanical Gardens.

This was a great group of enthusiasts and all found a multitude of subjects to sketch. Quite a few chose close ups of the flora. It’s so peaceful that you do find yourself taking time to look at everything around your chosen sketch spot. A massive variety  to choose from of course.

Lunch was under the shade of a very large tree – of course – and a bit of a chat and relax was a lovely way to spend our day and not be eating Easter eggs.

My sketch was all on one page and just some moments as they happened.
