Hello! Today you will be reading about something very cool I did just today. I was sketching flowers. Now if you’re in Hawaii or Florida this might not be very exciting, but we are in Pennsylvania. And this is the story behind it.
Dad, my brother Jack, and I were at a place Jack calls ‘The Mud,” which really is the Wissahickon Water Shed. We go there so Jack can throw rocks in the water. We were just about to leave when I saw a single white flower poking out of the ground. I said to Dad, “Look at this!” We decided to come back that Saturday so I could sketch all the flowers I saw.
When we came back on Saturday this is what I saw: I saw some Daffodils. This Daffodil in particular was so beautiful I had to draw it because it was facing its back to me. I could have turned it, but I didn’t. For two reasons: 1. Don’t mess with nature, and 2. It was just so beautiful.
Another flower I saw was an Impatiens. I thought this one was so cool because the two shades of purple blended so well.
Another two teeny-tiny ones I saw were ground flowers. One of them was Myrtle. The other one, neither Dad nor I knew the name of. I drew Myrtle because it caught my eye in the grass.
The last one we saw was called a Hyacinth. I drew it because it had such an irregular figure and had a soft pink.
That was our flower expedition. I hope to do something like it again. Adios!
