Sketch from this morning's walk at Van Horn Park, visiting my old friend the softball backstop. I was interested in the weeds growing around the base, but no sooner had I started sketching than a guy showed up with a weedwacker and started mowing them down. So I included him and quickly indicated the as yet un-wacked weeds. Also made a mess of the superstructure but that's another story.
