treeI can’t claim to have a green thumb… yet. I spent most of my day yesterday working out in our yard. There is a lot of work to be done. So far I have raked up at least 10 big garbage bags of pine needles, and I ended up with 2 big bags of clippings after mowing. We have a big yard. That’s one of the perks in small towns. I have a yard, but not much of a lawn. A number of years/owners ago there was a huge garden that took up most of the yard. It was never really re-seeded, and it’s mostly weeds and dandelions. We will be spraying the whole yard this fall. By spring the roots will all be dead and soft. We will rototill¬†everything, smooth it out, and then re-seed. A neighbor suggested trying to graft some fresh branches into the apple trees. The trees are about 50 years old, and past their best growing days.

Todays sketch was a quick one. I just used the real 2B pencils in Painter12.
