A Little of This & That.
A beautiful morning full of spring and light. I am feeling cheery and the playful sea suits my mood with its leaping froth and curling waves, spray flying high into the sky and sprinkling my face like a shop bought spritzer only without the chemicals and smelling so much better.
Spiky maram grasses with a milky backdrop
and the swirling skirts of dancing sea.
The camera takes in the bright sun and darkens the scene making sunset hues appear where in reality there are the harsher tones of early spring. I like the effect nonetheless.
Jade, aqua, turquoise ... all sound so appealing don't they?
Isabella and I made more of our bird feeders as we could hear the manic chattering in the front garden hedge. This mixed hedging of lilac, ivy, holly and so much more provides shelter for all manner of wildlife from hedgehogs to slow worms, toads and of course a whole variety of bird life: coal tits, blackcaps, blackbirds, goldfinches and so many more are seen regularly and have only recently decided I am not trying to poison them with my fatty offerings of grub. I still have the bird chart to make however, but am more on top of the tasks this week so who knows...
The red roses (a gift from Dave some weeks ago now) have faded to a crisp dark, dark red version of their former selves and are so beautiful as they dry, the sun turning the petals into stained glass windows of light.
That is my start to the day then and now I am off to continue working on the new projects I have bubbling away like that busy sea. Hopeful I will be able to share them with you later this week, some familiar in style and some completely new to me which I have enjoyed working on so much. In the meantime, here's a little glimpse of one of them
I hope your day is going well? x
