A Car with a View :: Automobile avec vue

Yesterday I had 2.5 hours to kill between appointments and I decided to arrive early for my second appointment to go to the Cléroux Nursery in Pierrefonds. As I parked, my eyes went up and lo and behold, a beautiful view of the Terry Fox Elementary School was waiting for me to paint it. Well, I stayed put, right there in the car, to sketch and paint this as I heard the hustle and bustle behind me of people coming in and out of the Nursery with loads of flowers, plants and earth. If you have never been to this Nursery, it is well worth it.

Hier j’avais une succession de rendez-vous et je me suis retrouvée avec 2.5 heures à tuer. J’ai décidé de me rendre à l’avance à mon dernier rendez-vous et passer du temps à la Pépinière Cléroux à Pierrefonds. Comme je stationnais, mes yeux se sont levés à cette vue — l’école primaire Terry Fox, et je savais que je devais la peindre. C’était super car toutes les fenêtres étaient ouvertes, et pendant que je peignais j’entendais le va et vient constant des employés et clients qui se promenaient avec des fleurs, arbustes, arbres et terreau — le bonheur! Si vous n’avez jamais été à cette pépinière, elle vaut le détour ;-)
