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 ..........
