Botanical Gardens

This morning, I took a morning walk at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. It is one of my favorite places to visit. I do not have a green thumb, so I need to go to the gardens to see beautiful flowers. The weather is still spring-like, with a lot of humidity. The summer heat has not hit yet.  Birds were every where. A Blue Jay posed for me ; and I captured a photo of a cardinal just before he took off.
I made a short video with the photos I took with my phone.

The color, design, and textures in the garden were inspirational. I think these flowers are named Brown-eyed Susan.

I used fabric paint and crayons on canvas for the background. Then I cut fabric to form the stems, leaves, and flowers. I thread sketched a bit to give it texture. Then I machine stitched a black outline.

A Walk in the Garden

After some beautiful, sunny, and warm days, we are now having a bit of a cool front. My Meemaw friends and I decided to enjoy the brisk air and take our weekly walk at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. They are having an art display of Lego sculptures. The Nature Connect sculptures are by Sean Kenney. It is an amazing display.
 
I especially liked the red wheelbarrow.
The “gardeners” in the background are also Lego sculptures.
 
The deer family was another favorite.
The spider hanging from the tree was also.

This bird bath with cardinals also had a squirrel and bumble bees. It was made with over 14, 500 Legos.

The turtle with the bird on its back made me smile.

The peacock was made with over 68,000 Legos.
The Gardens were beautiful as always, and our walk was very enjoyable.
Some of the plants were decorated.

Now, I have to get back to work.
I have finished binding one wall hanging.
I have two small quilts and one large quilt to bind.
Then there are some other projects that need to be finished before Christmas.
