Along the playground and next to the parking lot, I made a rainbow garden. It has mostly perennials. I wish I had used painted tires instead of painted pots, because then the potted plants (mostly annuals) could be watered by the soaker hose, rather than by hand.

I went to a craft night with friends and didn't know what to work on, so I decided to do a marker sketch of one of my Chicago Peace roses. I hadn't drawn in a long time and it was fun, especially since you don't have to match all the petals exactly to the photo, unlike facial features (I did portrait commissions for years, ever since middle school). The drawing's colors remind me of Lisa Frank's products.
