Beasley, where our son and daughter-in-law have recently moved, is a very small town but has many interesting things to sketch --- such as this free-standing church bell tower. And yes, that bird really was on the top of the upper cross!
Someday, I will do proper sketches of the old mills, barns, and an older church with a copper steeple. Or simply a watercolor painting of the hay field in our kids' back yard.
They brought each of the kids a souvenir key chain to remember this year's trip by; Josiah's moose was unavailable at the time of this drawing. He had actually gotten angry at his sister and threw it --- they were still searching for it when I left to drive home.
And so ends another granny-nanny journal. I drove home to find this year's bluebonnets already beginning to bloom, a month early. And yes, the faked red initial stamp blurred . . . but then, etegami is supposed to be clumsy, right?
