giant peony

This afternoon Jackson and I snuck away while Cade was "napping" and Jon was working. We went into a public garden near our house and discovered this giant, gorgeous, pink peony. I'd never seen anything like it.

Later Jackson drew this in his nightly journal:

It was sweet because we'd been talking about how we had an adventure, just the two of us, which is kind of rare.

I love all the overlapping petals he drew - and the fact that it's one continuous line. Now that I think about it, I think that's an exercise from "Drawing from the Right Side of Your Brain."
