Garden Art...

Today was an art day at Schreiner's Gardens.
What a beautiful, warm, sunny day!

Their 10 acre gardens are in bloom and a glorious site to see!

 There are so many varieties of Iris.
 And many other flowers in their display gardens as well.
 The poppies seemed enchanting today!
Here's my pencil...
Poppies, then on to try an Iris...

Denise started with a sketch
 then added watercolor...
