More Joy Than I Can Imagine

That’s what the first Bumble Bee in the garden brings me.

Add to that the creative brain exercises that that the course requires and the arrival of a heater for the freezing garage/print room making the realisation of those exercises more possible.

And I am slowly getting more and more familiar with prints and their endless and fascinating variety.

A few trial prints. It’s all trees, grasshoppers and the surreal world of the garden. More to come when something is more resolved.

This term is rushing by.

These are exquisite! I have seen three Bumblebees in the last week - but yet to see a 2015 butterfly.

Hi there Caroline and Pat.. Many thanks for your kind comments!! yes I have been very tardy getting back to your all. Apologies! The bees have been wonderful this year. They are everywhere at the moment. I had a very lucky shot of a woolcarder the other day, should be on the blog soon. Val
