Blue! Poppies

This was my first time at this event.  Urban Sketchers (USk) Tacoma was there two years ago but I wasn't.  As one of the sketchers said, "those poppies really are blue!".   Blue Poppy Day is held once a year at the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden in Federal Way.  

This was an "ad hoc" outing and just a few sketchers attended.  There are two missing from the group photo. 

I decided on a montage. The tree on the left "hosts" what looks like a bird feeder. But I saw many bees going in and out. To the right is the bell in the gazebo. Lower left is the Garden Pond. That bit was rather rushed as it started to sprinkle. Last, but certainly not least, on the right side is the Blue Poppy.

More photos of pretty flowers are here.

  1. Wonderful montage, Kate. Sorry I missed, but as you know, I had another obligation! 😎 Blue poppies and the cornflower are two of my favorites and you got the poppies just the right color! Have you seen the display in Vancouver, BC at Van Dusen Gardens? They sell seeds!
