Cotswolds Bouquet

More Memory Lane. As I went through an old travel folder, I found this sketch of a bouquet, there to greet us in a house we rented in the Costswolds in 1997. The unusual mix of colors made me think at first that the flowers and leaves were artificial.

Menorca 1981

Leafing through my sketches from my 1981 European trip (see yesterday's post), I came across this, from our stay on Menorca. I seem to have sketched as much about the food as the landscape.

Freiburg 1981

© Ellen Blonder
My sister Julie just told me they're going to Freiburg, Germany, this summer, which prompted me to find my sketches from my overnight stay there in 1981. We stayed at the Kreuz Gasthaus, and the building at the bottom was outside our window. The  five-inch-long room key impressed me enough to sketch it. The chickens in the backyard produced the eggs for our breakfast. I hope it hasn't changed.
