Our orchid’s almost in full bloom. What a stunner! I bought this last year and wasn’t expecting it to do so well. Perfect inspiration for a new watercolour painting.
Seeing the bluebells in bloom earlier inspired a little botantical painting. I think I’ll do a series of these featuring various springtime plants.
Went for a quick lunchtime forage over in the park earlier and discovered a sea of bluebells smelling divine! We’ve gathered some more wild garlic (a firm favourite in this house) and nettles to make some tasty wild treats. Yums.
My aunty kindly gave me lots of pretty paper recently and I’ve just been having a rummage through it. So much stationery love! The green packaged sheets are hand crafted from recycled cloth, not trees interestingly. Really looking forward to experimenting with all of these.
My stall at the Harbourside Market yesterday. The sun was almost shining. Unfortunately the pesky wind blew one of my frames off the table, other than that a very enjoyable day was had! Lots of yummy food and beautiful gifts. Thanks to everyone who made it down.
Ugh, wind and rain my least favourite weather combination. Though the day was saved by the lovely lady who offered me a brand new umbrella on the street after my shift at Paper Scissors Stone. Random acts of kindness fill me with joy!
I have a stall at the beautiful Harbourside Market in Bristol this coming Saturday, 11-4. If you’re in the area then come and explore. Yummy local produce, crafty goodies and lots more…
Crikey, Wednesday already! Bank holidays never fail to catch me out (especially when we’re treated to a rare scorcher). Here’s a sneak peek of some garden studies I started working on while basking in yesterday’s sunshine. We were given a beautiful chilli plant as a present on Monday and I can’t stop admiring it.
