We visited the Chicago Botanic Garden yesterday. It was beautiful, quiet and very cold. When we got back I went to work on the thousands of leaves in the front yard, raking and mulching. I found some bright leaves in the backyard and brought them in for more timed studies. I struggled with the first two – seemed too intricate for the tiny size and the 15 minute limit. I picked a few leaves off the twig, and the third and fourth sketches were much simpler to navigate.  Leafy day.
