Spring is in the air

Well, the Spring is here and I really love this time of  the year. The tadpoles are in the bog pools and the buds are getting ready to burst into leaf. Daffodils are in flower and the garden is coming back to life.  I get an incredible urge to get out into the garden working and sowing seed in the greenhouse.

A stroll in the woods, magical, like all those Enid Blyton books I read as a child.

A candy floss tree.. magic! well maybe not.. bursting with seeds really lovely.

The old cart wheel, if it could only talk and tell us its history!!

Lichen on a stone ditch gosh its beautiful!!!
The end of May, such a heavy coat of flowers on the whitethorn, is said to be a sign of a bad summer, I suppose we'll find out soon enough!

Well the time has really flown since I last updated here, been very busy, which is good...

I am currently creating a new body of work, which I may show here in time. In the meantime I will use this blog as a forum to show ideas, inspiration (from wherever it comes) by use of text, drawings and photographs.....
