Geranium Petals







Autumn leaves and geranium petals






































Princess staying warm indoors!


The lamp in the background is "Dancer"  -   carved and painted birch wood.
I made this some years ago to honour the passing of a close friend.

Blue Skies and Elderberries





Fledgling wood pigeon, in our elderberry bush in July, a few days before it became fully airborne ......







The bush is now laden with berries but for some reason the birds are not eating them .....







Perhaps the unusually warm September weather and blue skies have lulled them
into thinking it's still summer .....








We could get used to this too!















Wild flowers in the park continue their life cycle.

Almost Gone






Crocuses and snowflakes are again leaving us until next year.

How swiftly their fragile beauty seems to come and go  ..........

Sweet Dreams !






I've been trimming dead leaves and flowers on a cyclamen plant in the guest room.

The old Limoges plate was used purely for convenience but as I was about to bin the materials I noticed how interesting the colours, shapes and composition looked  .........



























A friend is coming to stay......will he be "Dreaming with Hypnos" ?


This sculpture head of Hypnos, ancient Greek God of Sleep, lives in the guest bedroom.
It was believed that he sent people to sleep by touching their forehead with his wand or fanning them with his dark wings. In my depiction the dream bird flies through his head.

Sweet dreams !









Thank you for visiting

Imbolg - Candlemas








In the Northern Hemisphere, we are now halfway between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox,
and we welcome the returning light  ........





















At the edge of a woodland, new growth stirs unseen beneath the surface  .......












The same area in August -  grasses, brambles, nettles and rosebay willowherb










Today   -   sunshine and blue skies ..........
