Slow start to the day

Ever have one of those mornings when nothing starts of quite right? 

I think this little character is having one of those days a very slow start on a wet morning. It will get better :) Inspired by illustration friday challenge slow....
Which one do you like best? I had fun adding the rain :) Trying to put together a portfolio for children's illustrations to send to publishers which images should I include? Any suggestions and feedback would be appreciated!

Ghost of Summer
Today was short sleeve weather, gardening, long weekend filled with remembrance, display at the library with my fathers medals from WW2, events from Ottawa in the past few weeks....time passing, not forgotten.

Missing Making Bouquets!

Missing making bouquets? I didn't think I would be saying this after a busy summer of picking and painting each week! That said I'm already looking at seed catalogues! Wonderful sunny day working in the garden digging dahlias, planning for next year, garlic planting.......
