When Dad had a new deck built at the farm, we celebrated with a picnic! If you ignore all the chores associated with farm life, Dad had an idyllic life: fresh vegetables every day (that he started from seed - I can still smell the dirt baking from sterilizing), a cutting garden that he actually used (I "could" pick my flowers any time I want to!), and the best view (first the pond, then the sheep pen and beyond to the gardens and fruit trees). In fact, other than this inaugural day, we tried to never sit with our back to the yard. Dad was also the first person I know who mixed herbs with his annuals, so a supply of parsley, etc. was always available to add to your plate. You simply had to know that the ornamental peppers were just that! And, we started every meal with a toast to the farm: Via Via!
This is my Watercolour Illustration of my son having a wonderful, fun picnic with his toys and surrounded by some of his favorite foods. It includes a lot of fruit which he can't get enough of. You might even spot a few bees in there, this is an insect he loves and I love them too, if it wasn't for bees we wouldn't have all the food we do have.
One of my favorite picnic memories is taking our kids when they were little hiking up on Mt. Rainier. We often stopped at an overlook and had a yummy picnic lunch consisting of sandwiches, berries, cheeses, apples, nuts, and something good to drink. Summer at Mt. Rainier is breathtaking and beautiful and makes for a perfect picnic backdrop!
I just saw this and happy to have made it in under the wire! These are my essential picnic items - jam jars for storage and wine (unbreakable!), sparkling wine (no corkscrew needed), salami, cheese and crackers. My woven basket doubles as a backpack for finding picnic spots off the beaten track :)
Bright and playful layout featuring picnic foods, basket, and sneaky little ants making off with bits of it all! Bold and limited color palette, hand-lettering and a subtle grid pattern in the background nods to the classic picnic blanket.
