Lilacs and crab apple trees will be in bloom in the Longenecker Horticultural Garden at the UW Arboretum on Wednesday May 3rd for our first outing. This is a change due to poor weather conditions on Tuesday. Wed. afternoon should be warmer and hopefully we will see some sun. We will meet at 2pm in the main parking lot by the Visitor's Center which will be open until 4pm. The restroom and bubbler in the horticultural garden is now open for the season. Curtis Prairie was recently burned as part of prairie maintenance and is looking fresh and green now. Looking forward to seeing you all again this year!!

It's been wonderful to be able to go outside and paint after a dreary winter. Hungry for color I get greedy and want to paint it all. Started last week with painting a swamp though and gradually moved to brighter subjects. Here's a few very quick sketches done in the past week at the Arboretum, Pheasant branch and Picnic Point.
