Carrying on.

Painting.


Some repairs done with the magic eraser.

Not weeding.





Nettles are winning.

Prom walking.




Less people.

Boats



This boat must be stuffed with fish.  The birds know......




A Yellowhammer in the garden.


All takes my mind off the current situation.  My seven grandchildren going back to school, nurseries, when the government in England cannot do sums.  On deaths.

Will they all go back, do you think? Thankfully the schools here are closed until September at the earliest.

My son, who teaches in England, says parents can choose to have their children stay at home...my grandchildren are staying home..I can’t see they’ll get a lot of people who want to send their children...he has been going in once a week to work with the children of essential workers who need childcare..
Wish I was near you. I’d happily weed for you...I’m barely keeping up with weeds here..I just reclaimed my onion bed! And am housebreaking a new puppy...
Tell me what your “ magic eraser” is..I’ve never learned much about water colours and would love to learn more!

Oh, I love your painting! and the photos of the flowers and the photos of the boats especially the one with the birds swooping round! What a talent you have! Thanks so much for sharing. You are great!

I like your photos as usual but especially the boat with all the gulls around it! And your flowers are very pretty. I live on an island off the coast of Maine for much of the year and tend to overlook the beauty of gulls but your photos and paintings have opened my eyes to pay more attention to detail and identification. 💖

Nettles are the preferred food of caterpillars of the red admiral butterfly. Just think of the favour you are doing them - and all those nectar flowers for the adult butterflies. Perfect garden. (Besides butterflies, nettles make a good substitute for spinach. I've tried them in spinach pie and risotto, and frankly you wouldn't know the difference. Nutritious fodder!) (F - not Tigger, he hates greens)

It loos so blue that sea, do you ever paint the fishing boats?

Nettles are good for aches and pains! I sting my knees and its like Deep Heat but the heat stays for days! I heard about it on Woman's Hour years ago. Take care.

Are those nettles the same ones they used to make tea during the war? You are so interesting. I love your bird paintings. Take care.
