Sea Pine Forest Preserve Field Trip

Great fun today at the Forest Preserve.  The weather, while not as warm as predicted, was real good.  A bit of a breeze that kept our sweaters on, and high thin clouds that made for cooler temps but, after the unusually cold winter we had it was soooooo nice to see the wild flowers and trees popping.  Yellow pollen is everywhere!  Usually at this time of year, the wild flower field is full of poppies.  We saw only 3 or 4 plants.


Here are some images of our day.  The first is my demo as we sat above the wild flower field. The ink sketch of everyone (thank goodness you don't know any of these people 'cause they don't look like this! :) is at our second location.

Pine pollen makes everything yellow this time of year.
