Sculpture, Clouds and Clematis

30 May

1   I’ve been looking at this beautiful sculpture for months,  after singing on Thursdays, and longing to have it as mine. I’ve been saving up and today, went into the workshop for the second time. The first was months ago to enquire about it. Today, I have bought it. The Fledgling is now mine and I can pick it up next week. It has been waiting for me all this time!

2   The clouds this evening have been beautiful, all sorts of lovely patterns. I have to learn what the patterns mean in terms of weather to come.



3   Our Clematis Montana is coming into  flower and is very lovely.

    What on earth is a rhubarb forcer?! I’ve never heard of such.

    Lovely pictures, as usual. 🙂

    Glorious clematis… we used to call those sorts of clouds a mackerel sky when I was a child….

    I am enjoying our clematis montana also. At times, it has a perfume reminding me of vanilla biscuits (cookies).

    It is nice to treat oneself. You were lucky I didn’t see the sculpture first.

      I’m very lucky that no-one else spotted that he had reduced the price and made it saveupable! 🙂
