A Storm's perfect for a picnic!

Oh, we don't mind a spot of stormy weather, now do we? In fact, we rather relish it. That's our challenge for this week's Scribble Picnic, after all. :) So, put your wellies on and let's go splash about in the creative tempests below. I'm thinking a quick cuppa might be in order beforehand. How about you? I dare say though that lil' hedgie here, isn't quite as fond as we might be about such things. Aw, poor lil' fellow.

P.S. BTW, as indicated on the side bar, we have a whole two week break with school over and summer plans beginning for many. By the time this gets posted, I'll be waking up to Alexandra finally back home, her "folks" here and places to take them to around this area. It's actually been quite cold and rainy lately too, but again, I don't mind — it just means it's that brief period of time (a few weeks) when it's weirdly green here in this otherwise arid, rocky, high plains Colorado desert.

Pass the Strawberry Jam, would you?

What could go better than strawberry anything with a nice Scribble Picnic Spring day? Well, here's my attempt at drawing my teatime snack this (Tuesday) late afternoon. Actually, it was a low sugar, all-natural strawberry spread but I made it look more like a chunky jam and added a bite out of it, just for fun. :)

So, yes, another still life of sorts, and since the last one was so enjoyed, again, a fairly scribbly, looser sketch... although, admittedly, the details on the English muffins took ages. (No wonder I was getting quite nippish all over again by 10:30pm!)

By the way, these are based off some little plates we own — perfect for Tea. Ours though don't actually have the decoration as shown here, added for a further tie-in to the theme.

Anyway, I do so love strawberries, how about you? Can't wait to see what everyone else provides. Thank you!
