Bellevue Botanical Garden

A few of us met today at Bellevue Botanical Garden. I'd been there a year ago or so and knew exactly what I wanted to sketch first:  what I call the Hobbit door.  The garden was originally a house and grounds belonging to a family.  This door was to have led to a root cellar but I was told it proved too damp.  The door is about 3 feet high and is down the hill, some distance from the home (which is now the Visitor's Center).

I still had about an hour, so I went back up to the visitor center to sketch the water wise garden and its structure.  I also added Tina as she sketched the flowers on a bush.

Gordon, Tina and me.
