Proud auntie shows off her nephews!

Lovely Easter weekend with my brother's (see him on my profile pic) family staying with us. Relaxing, eating, catching up on news, and out for a walk in the perishing cold. Mumsie took us all out to The Bell at Yarpole - definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

It's great to see how things are progressing for Joe and Sam.

Here are a couple of Sam's photos from his Walcot collection.

Meanwhile listen to Joe's latest demo tracks from his recent recording at Raezor Studios, my particular favourites are Mountain and Hold On.


Starting new photo collection

New products, plans for a new catalogue, so I need to begin with the images. The peacocks might be a pest snipping off the flower heads in the garden, but at least I can benefit from what they left of the hellebores. I grew these from seed in 2002 from the Botanic Gardens in Bristol and this year they have been absolutely stunning. I can't quite work out whether the peacocks see the colour and enjoy it or want to destroy it?

Here they are in the raking light of a spring day, on one of our new dinner plates.


Arthur's Indian Runners

Watching this little movie brightens a stormy, gloomy Monday.


Mad March Hare

Saw another hare again on my morning run. They don't seem to notice if you are directly ahead of them. There it was on the track doing its lazy lollup-run (not a bunny hop) towards me. Then I waited whilst it sat and nibbled at a blade or two of grass and carried on towards me. It looked so like my March Hare drawing for our Easter box labels.
