This is my latest train ticket art. I’ve been using some of the clipart that I designed for my shop as well as trying out a few painted motifs.

Signs of Spring

This winter has been a long, wet, dreary one.  Not particularly cold (sorry, American friends!) but at times we wondered if Britain was going to sink under the weight of water pouring from the sky…

But on my walk on Friday I saw definite signs of the new spring life popping up everywhere…

June Reeds

green reeds in june

A lot more green now.

VERY green

Spring green….


The brown stems are still poking up but the new growth is catching them up…


And the sea of reeds from previous months is just a hazy mist outlining the path of the pill.

Spring is coming…

Spring is beginning to emerge here in Wales.


The supermarket online delivery  came this morning so the fruitbowl is looking well stocked, and in the fridge is enough food to warm the cockles of 3 teenage boys’ hearts.


And today is DS3’s birthday… when they start having birthdays I know spring is here.  All three of them were born this time of year.  His cake arrived too…


Outside is looking a bit dead still but today the sun is shining.


Yesterday I decided my clothes needed a new lease of life so I used some washing machine dye that I bought in the Woolies closing down sale – those trousers on the right used to be a yukky light sort of khaki colour – I like them much better in a terracotta brown.  And the teal jumper in the middle used to be quite a nice green  … till I forgot to wear an apron and it got various paint splashes on it!  And the other two jumpers are a lot nicer now too.  I shall look forward to wearing them.


Cobweb has decided it’s spring too and that it was warm enough in the sun to curl up in the garden.  Let’s see how long it lasts, eh?
