Bailey and Hermon are two of our local parks. I've painted at both parks quite a few times with the local paint-out groups. Hermon was on the schedule for possible Jacaranda trees in bloom. They were there at the south end of the long park. Unfortunately I drove by that area, paying more attention to the busy Saturday park traffic, and missing the lavender flowers. Instead I painted an interesting hillside at the north end of the park. Now I know where the Jacarandas are!
We usually go to Bailey Canyon Park to paint the Matilija poppies. It turned out not to be a good year for the poppies. Maybe not enough rain last winter. So I painted another hillside with some friends to chat with.
