from the garden
Our peach tree's boughs are heavy with ripe fruit and now it's a race between us and the squirrels as to who gets to eat them. Our next-door-neighbor's giant tomatoes also ripen this time each year, so it was time for our annual exchange of garden bounty.
Yesterday evening I painted some of the harvest while watching a movie with my husband. My models were very ripe and smelled so good while I was painting them. I inked the tomatoes but not the peaches.
Today I printed them small and put them on blank note cards. Now I have something to mail back to Miwako.
