Friday's Flowers: a child's bouquet
Renee, at FIMBY, is hosting Friday's Flowers, a gathering of the summer's bouquets. I love the idea, as a reminder to keep refreshing those bouquets that I love to have but sometimes forget to gather, and as a challenge to improve my photography (is that even possible with the falling-apart piece of garbage camera I'm using?).
Earlier this week, we took a walk past some farm fields that are bordered by long grass and wildflowers along the road. It was a very slow walk, as you can imagine, as the children had to keep stopping to add to their bouquets (does anyone else sing "kum kwa kee wa, kum kwa kee wa" as they pick? Or is that just me? It's from a story my mother told us when we were little...The Gunnywulf.)
Back in the studio, some of the kids decided to draw their bouquets...
