Inspired!

In the November 2018 issue and again in the March 2019 issue, the article A Garden Journal by Ann Mortimer inspired me. I am no gardener, but the inspiration was adapted for our local park. I am a member of the friend’s group and I started a book of small paintings and drawings of the park, using my favourite media.
