I didn’t get to post yesterday, so I’m doubling up today. This is the courthouse tower on the city square just around the corner from where I found the log cabin I drew for the twelfth. I only did the tower because it was impossible to get a place where I could park long enough to draw and see the whole courthouse. When I found a decent place to park, it had buildings blocking the body of the courthouse. Actually, it was no big deal as I was just interested in the clock tower really.
We planted Japanese Maples (I think) in our front yard a few years ago and either I am really unobservant or this is the first year for them to make seeds. I found a little green whirligig seed pod on the drive today. I’m pretty sure we’ve never had them before from our trees, but when I looked at our little tree it had tons on it. I plucked one off the tree, along with a leaf, to draw tonight. I wonder if a tree has to be so old or big to make the little seed pods??
