Sunny days

What an amazing week we have had - I can't remember an April like it! Like a lot of you, no doubt, I have spent a lot of time out doors rather than in my 'studio'.  I will share a few things I have been up to, but it is not a lot. Firstly I have finished my Butterfly books and they are now in my Etsy shop.

I have also filled in my Textile journal.

Otherwise I have not done a lot on the creative front - just haven't been in the mood this week.
But I did spend a lot of time watching the waxwings which stayed until Friday by which time they had completely stripped the last of the berries off the cotoneaster.  This was the best shot I got, heavily cropped.

At one time we counted 22 of them on the TV aerial.

Otherwise I have been trying to get rid of some of these
Although very bright and cheerful, they are overtaking my garden.

MrT has been looking after his onions

I don't drink this yogurt drink ALL the time, but here are about a year's worth of bottles marking the onion rows. Note little 'fence' which seems to have kept the local cats off.
Most of the time I have just been enjoying these flowers which have burgeoned this week.

spotted laurel (aucuba)

and finally a close-up of those polyanthus.
Oh, but I have been getting my next postcard ready for Postman's Knock.  You'll have to wait to see that.

Have a lovely week.
