Allotment update...

With all this hot weather the allotment has needed LOTS of attention. My mum and I have planted a variety of things to eat when they have grown: Carrots, Onions, Garlic, Peas, Potatoes, Borage, Radish, Beetroot, Strawberries....and many more!! We have also planted two Apple and Pear trees.
So much watering to be done!
There is still a tremendous amount of work to be done! Masses of grass and weeds to be dug out, but now it will have to wait until the summer holidays.
Wishing you all a very happy Easter!

Crafting Blanket!

My mum has crocheted me a nice blanket that will keep me warm as I craft! It is so pretty and colourful just how I like it!!!
It really is beautiful!! Thank you mum!! I'm pretty sure I should be giving you a gift as it is Mothers Day soon! :)
I have started my first few hours of my art exam and it is very challenging!! I have decided to paint a photo of a chaffinch I had taken. The painting will be A4 and looks very large!! During my first 3 hours I have only managed a quick wash of the body and painted the head in detail!!
This is going to prove very challenging!!
I hope everyone has enjoyed those few days of sun we have had recently as it seems to have disappeared again!!
Have a very wonderful weekend!
