Japanese Garden outing

On Tuesday Nicole and I ventured out to the UW Arboretum's Japanese Garden, which I had never been to before.  Admission was $6.  It's a lovely garden, though not terribly large (the FREE Kubota Garden is SIX TIMES larger -- but it's way way south in the Rainier Beach neighborhood).

We've been having some stunningly gorgeous weather of late -- clear sunny skies and nearing 70 degrees.  I think it was around 65 during our Tuesday outing.  There were plenty of benches from which to do sketches.  I would definitely go again.



One of the two views I managed to draw:

The second sketch:

You can tell from the photos that it wasn't very crowded on a weekday, so I didn't have to worry about putting any pesky people into my drawings -- always a plus!


  1. Very nice! I'm not a fan of crowds either so at least we agree on something LOL. Glad you are having such lovely weather. It's supposed to be 75 here today. Yippee!

    1. It's supposed to hit 70 both today and Friday. Good days to be retired! After our 6-hour-long outing yesterday, Tru and I are taking it easy at home today, mostly in the garden. I brought out his wading pool and he's been making good use of it.

    2. Yes I saw the adorable photos of Truman in his pool. He's so cute!
