I've been enjoying the cooler temps and golden colors beginning to show so I went out this morning to sketch. I consider the backyard the entire neighborhood and field area around where I live so that gives me much more space for inspiration...:) Today I found huge cattails and the Russian Olive trees are starting to become full with their fruits. I added a little more color to them than they really are. I thought they needed a little pink. I've been inspired to post more drawings and paintings after visiting and reading these two blogs:

I've been keeping a tomato garden sketchbook this summer. It is a simple red sketchbook the size of a notebook and I've decided to fill it with drawings from my tomato garden. I call it my tomato garden because it is a small garden and the tomatoes have taken over (good fertilizer this year I guess). Lots of dragonflies and bees have visited this year.
Along with my very large cherry tomato plants I have a jalapeno pepper plant, wildflowers and herbs that have stood their ground and continued to grow ~ crowded to the max and all.
I scattered coreopsis seeds early in the season and now have them all over. The bees love them and I finally got a decent picture of one last evening after trying 10+ times.
My tomatoes. My best crop yet and they taste pretty good too. Happy autumn tomorrow!
