As I sit here at my desk writing this post, this is what I can see out of the window in front of me......
Its a cloudy, misty kind of day today. I can hear the jackdaws upon the chimmney pot, rooks over in the big trees and other birds chirping their merry spring songs. I can hear the engine drone of a lawn mower as a neighbour tidys their lawn ready for the weekend and I can smell the sweet scent of cut grass drifting on the breeze.
Its been a week of bits and pieces and snuffles and sneezes. I've not been able to settle on things, since picking up a cold at the beginning of the week.
I began with sketching an idea for Illustration Friday, but didn't develop it into the finished piece, so never submitted it.
Then I decided to sketch some of the bones from the owl pellets.....
I didn't attempt to get stuck into the painting I have on the go at the moment,as I just knew when your not feeling your best, its not a good idea ( for me anyway :) )
I have lots more work to do on this painting which is on a 30x30 cms canvas.
I've been in the greenhouse enjoying the warmth through the glass and sowing more seeds. And,weeding in the garden where I keep coming across little treasures like this...
Another skeleton! This time skeleton of a holly leaf.
I did find another very special treasure, but that one will have to wait a while for a future post!?!?
The sun is beginning to break through the clouds now, and my cold feels much better today :) I think its time to go and put the kettle on.
