Winding road, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Here's a quick watercolor sketch that I made today in Scotland. The wild heather growing on the hillsides here is glorious! We've enjoyed weaving along the serpenting, single-track roads here, and wonder, as always, what's around the next corner?

Great Scot!


I've been a bit enchanted with these Scottish Highland cows since forever ago, and of course they are ubiquitous here in Scotland.... and also the sheep. There are zillions of sheep here!

London (and Scotland) calling!

We're heading over to the other side of the big Pond! Some of the activities we have planed in London involve visiting as many museums as our feet can take, seeing David Suchet (you Poirot fans know precisely who I mean) as Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest (one of my fave Oscar Wild plays), seeing a play at Will's Globe Theater, hitting bits of the London Design Festival, and whatever other serendipitous magic comes our way. I strongly suspect that at some point pints of ale may be involved. After a few days of fast city life, we'll take a train up to Edinburgh, hop in a car and explore the mystical Scotland countryside. I'll check in from time to time with photos and perhaps some roadside watercolor sketches.

Gifts from the garden!

Those little yellow pear tomatoes 
are my fave. I've picked zillions of 
them this summer!
