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.
