Love hedgehogs


The light wasn’t great when I photographed the early stages of my watercolour painting of a hedgehog. I will build many transparent colour layers to create this little hog. I’ll aim to capture an essence of his character. I’m waiting for the paint to dry before I carry on.

I’ll update you soon with how my little hog painting is coming on!

It is a joy to be making puddles of colour again, adding water and letting my brush drop colour onto the paper.

Whilst I’m waiting, I’ll make a hot chocolate or chamomile tea to warm my hands.

Have a lovely evening.

I couldn’t resist taking this shot from the courtyard, such a colourful sky!

Fields of Green!


Fields of Green,

Energizing to see,

Skylarks love to flutter

And chatter;

I wonder about the patterns

Made by tractors, what they

Look like from the skylarks’ sight.

Today’s walk cleared my mind of cluttered chatter, building up, fuzzing, buzzing in my ears.

The dogs just love to run across these flatlands. Now back in my warm home I can enjoy a restful afternoon.

Enjoy your day.X

Happy 2019!


2019 is here and the weather is mild in Bedfordshire, where I live. I miss my big cottage garden border full of dahlias, so here are a few of them to delight you!

My second collage is from a walk around my cousin’s garden on Christmas eve. I adore Viburnam blossom, so sweet, my favourite catkins , rhododendron buds ..should they be out now? And finally fresh green ferns.

Enjoy the offerings of winter…to cherish.
