Lavender, Sow Thistle and Morgan Lefay

Walking yesterday came across these bees and butterflies on some lavender and sow thistle.   Also we seem to have a major influx of cabbage butterflies (large whites) around here.   Is it the same all over the country?

And my last picture is of my favourite girl “Morgan lefay”  or “Mimmi” when we roll around the floor playing!

Hope your all having a good Tuesday.

Feather Inspiration and various places

I found a beautiful crow feather on the back field. It has inspired me to make some gift tags with ink and watercolour, I am actually very pleased with them and later today I hope to be experimenting and adding some fabric. It’s all a bit scary I am actually doing something creative!

Last weekend we went to Columbia Road Flower Market in East London. I wanted some plants to put in pots by our back door, the rose, chocolate cosmos and delphiniums seem to be ideal and I love the colours .

On the wall where we parked was this amazing piece of art, a great big giant rat.

It made me smile and on looking around I saw this much smaller piece of wall art, at which point I started me giggling.

Later on in the week I travelled to Cheshire to see my Mum and sisters and spent a pleasant morning at Snugburys, where delicious ice cream was consumed and we visited the Da-Lick. A wonderful tribute to Dr WHO, a giant dalek made of straw. I have taken lots of pictures and will be using them during our Dr WHO day which is happening at the school where I work in October.
