Thanks to the mower manufacturer who kindly sent me the broken bit and a friend who fitted it, I am back to tidying my garden. A lot needs doing but it’s getting better.
I’m engraving a very large vase which is overlaid with pale blue and then dark blue over clear. I’ve chosen the Welsh legend of the Wife of Llew which lends itself to exciting and dynamic images. I thought I’d share it in progress. None of the 3 images around the vase is finished yet but there is the wife (Blodeuwedd), then the half woman half owl and finally an owl.
A few days ago The Queen visited Somerset and she was shown a display of the work of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen.
I was told this afternoon that I was one of the 20 featured Crafters and that a piece of my work was part of this. So that’s exciting!
I’ve recently extended a flower bed and my new plum tree looks like it may have plums later in the year.
I’m waiting for frogs to move in. The miniature water lily has new leaves since I created this about a week ago.
It wasn’t raining today so I did a quick potter around my garden. There are lots of weeds and my veg patch needs serious digging but there are baby gooseberries on my little red gooseberry bush and my potatoes are coming along nicely in their bags.
