#ippdailydraw – August 9th – Across the garden at dusk

© Gabriella Buckingham Aug 9th 2012

I sat down on top of a giant fabric frisbee next to the rabbits and looked across at the main flower bed. The Knautia (Macedonica?) is flowering, leaning – 7ft tall in places – and has pale pinky-brown button buds  opening to small fluffy pale yellow punctuations against the sky. I used my Waterman ink pen and I’d just changed the cartridge – the ink didn’t flow as easily as it had with the earring and the mustard tin I drew earlier in the week. It was scratchy but that meant there were bonus lighter lines, adding variety!
There was an autumnal feel to the garden this morning. I snapped a few photos, of which this is my favourite:
