On Memorial Day the parks are busy, so I was reluctant to go painting there. It is not that I mind people watching, just that I will be in the way unless I lug my stuff down the trails out of the way. The weather forecast was predicting rain so I decided to set up in my yard and paint the peonies. The sun was shining when I started but soon came and went. The blooms also changed as they were opening while I was painting. This was a good painting exercise.
