First Hellebore

First Hellebore. Oil on Canvas. 7" x 5".

The weather has been amazing here in the Pacific Northwest. Yesterday I spent the day with my husband on, over and around Puget Sound. He did his geology work, I sketched trees. We caught the 3:30 ferry from Port Townsend and sat in the sun on the ferry. Really. Sun. The guy next to us saw grey whales spouting but I missed it.

Today my pink hellebores opened. Or at least 2 did. Anytime now the white hellebores will be fully open. Great, great weather.
