Some friends asked me to water their lovely garden while they were away on holiday. The neighbours must have thought I was the laziest gardener because I just turned on the sprinklers, parked myself on a chair and sketched things that grabbed my fancy. Things started out a little tight and controlled but by the time the garden was good and soaked, I'd loosened up a bit. It always takes a bit of time to get over the perfectionist thing. The first few efforts made me want to rip the page out but I just kept adding flowers and seeds in. Things improved. I like the "no tearing pages out" rule of illustrated journaling. It makes me keep trying.
