After yesterday's sketch crawl, a few of us decided to meet up at Simon Seed Farm and Garden Center in Leesburg. We wanted to check the place out to see if it might be a future meeting place for our sketching group.
It's a small shop but has a lot of really interesting things over and above seed and plants. There are cages with a couple of exotic birds plus a cage with doves or pigeons and I think at one time they had chickens (although I didn't see any).
The shop also has antiques scattered around inside and out like old wood dollies, bike and what looked like a tractor of some kind. For me there was definitely a nice array of interesting subjects to sketch.
One item that jumped out at me was this guy standing in one of the windows facing the outside garden center. He was just too cute to pass up.
