A gracious host with warm and welcome surroundings

Ahhh. A taste of the tropics in mid-November. 
I warmed up, literally, with the long view. 
The light was amazing and the structure a bit overwhelming, but I loved the contrast of the technical exposed structure and the organic shapes and colors of the plants.  


This multi-colored palm tree caught my eye with the rich texture in the trunk. The leaves were multi-colored with a leopard-like pattern.


I concur with you all who have said it, our host, Doug Ewing was incredibly gracious and welcoming. Maybe we should make this an annual mid-winter location.

  1. Jane I agree that a warm, bright, tropical location is a must for our winter outings. Really lovely sketches too!
