After a lovely busy Summer bursting with family affairs, teaching, holidays and other welcome distractions, today is the first day I find myself home alone and able to concentrate.

So I picked this interesting Hydrangea flower from the garden and got re-acquainted with my paintbrush. It feels good 🙂

Everything has a season so they say and this year has not been my season for the garden (poor neglected thing).

However some past efforts continue to pay dividends – thank you Roses, that white weed thingy, the cow-parsley plant, my patio pots and of course the Alchemilla Mollis.

I snipped a few things I could find the other day  – all pleasingly lime green, green and yellow (thank you garden for self-theming the colours) and popped them into my 25 pence bargain jug for an afternoons play with the paints.

Just popping in at the end of a long day fuelled by 5 hours sleep (yes I’m a worry guts!)

The final scene – my little home for the next four days 🙂

I can tell you about my week through my ‘painting-a-day’ paintings.

An orchid from the salad at our Thai meal to celebrate being wedded for twenty whole years – yes I did take a flower out of the salad and yes, I did say 20 years!

A pale pink, double-headed Aquilegia which was the only casualty of having a new fence put up down one side of the garden.

A raspberry pink, candy striped Dahlia bought on impulse at a grocer’s shop in Ledbury.

I was in Ledbury (which is a sweet, quintessentially English market town) to drop off some paintings at Shell House Gallery.

Saturday 26th May is the opening day of “Artists Garden” – a group show. I love painting flowers from my garden and so was delighted to be able to join in. While I was there I bought these dahlias and some other fabulous bedding plants to paint, so the cycle continues.
