Flowers, Live Music and Raindrops

Our lovely neighbour brought round a small and very colourful bouquet from her garden.

We’ve spent the afternoon dressed in all our wet gear at an open air music event. It was held in the wonderful roofless old Church in St Day which has been brought back to life by the residents as a venue. It was just brilliant to be at a live music event again, all very well spaced and in the open air.

When we came home, rather damp, I noticed a sparkly diamond covered web on the Cotoneaster.

Painting, Being Alive and Spring Flowers

1   This morning’s post brought me another little treasure, a painting of Louise O’Hara’s called Fritillaria and it is truly beautiful.You can see more of her work here and on her website.

3   The rest of the country appears to be basking in sunshine. Here it is still grey and mizzley so here is a photo from this day last year when the sun shone on our Spring flowers (still trying to identify the pretty little pink one; can anyone help?)

P.S.    2/4/14     My SIL in Atlanta, Georgia tells me that the beautiful little pink flower is a Chionodoxa – Forbesii, sometimes known as Glory of the Snow. Thank you, V.

Winter Walk, Baking and ‘Pankhurst Row’

1   What a non-stop day now that the Grandchildren are here for half term – walking, playing card games, out with the scooters, playing hide and seek, investigating everything and then….

3   A beautiful piece of commissioned art-work arrived in the post today, ‘Pankhurst Row’, made by Drawn to Stitch, a very talented artist whose work I saw a little while ago and fell in love with!  The piece I saw was called Gardeners’ Row and when I asked if a similar piece could be made for me but with more purple and dark green, Suffragette colours, the answer was yes and it arrived today, so well packed and beautifully mounted. I am utterly delighted with it! Louise O’Hara is a mixed media artist from Cheshire, England who uses the name Drawn to Stitch and I adore her work.  Click on this link to go to her website and see more of her delightful creations.
