Along comes May,
So green, so lush...
My favourite month
Wonderful walks along the canal... The hedgerows alive with bird songs and blossom... The bluebells amongst the cowparsley on the lush, green Devon lanes.
Also an old brass band played under the historical archway buildings hiding from the rains. Lots of local food producers, pasties, mock tails & cream teas... Also live band singers in the late afternoon... 💚
I got my daughter to choose a cactus for her room collection... Her plant babies (miniature ones) 💚🌵
Little hedgehog friends... My whimsical mind on paper... Always thinking up something...
Love big bows on my little animal friends and frilly Peter pan collars... Seem to start paintings, drawings but never quite complete them lately... We have so much going on behind the scenes of blog life that my minds a little all over the place to concentrate for too long...
But art is my happy place so I keep pushing myself to try to finish things.
... And I keep thinking I've not been that creative but I have... Not sure why I keep putting myself down about it, but I think it's because I want more time to create... I do get hours in the week, evenings... But its what I call broken up time... I'll sit, start creating something but then there's a phone call, job needs doing, something I need to pick up or someone needs collecting from an activity. That's life I suppose. But a whole 3 hrs and no interruptions would be marvellous...
One of my joys is morning creative time... I only get that one morning a week but it feels bliss... Radio on, milky coffee... Morning, Home alone creating... Its a ritual I most enjoy and when I'm most inspired & full of ideas. Even if it's just for a few hours.
At this time of year when I love being in the garden in my free time or a lovely country, coastal walk I have to juggle that creative time too. I long for my very own little studio that opens onto a garden... Then I'd have the best of both worlds. One day... 💚😌 I'd also like an allotment area too. I think Im day dreaming out loud. Tehe.
Wonderful weekend adventure to Totnes in Devon... I so love it there. This is the community garden... So pretty. The artizan, colourful, homemade feel of the town set on a hill... Always a wonderful, welcoming atmosphere there... Lots of independent & wonderful shops.
Wonderful wild garlic & bluebells... 🌿💚🌿
