Sadly I cannot celebrate with our Tulips… they have all now gone home till next year.  

But being just a little sneaky, a long lens over the garden wall….. and presto, Tulips courtesy of our neighbours (but schuss, don’t tell anyone)  🙂

What you can tell people is….

Cannot wait……. Its not a Load of Bull

But to make sure that happens, and Hairdressers can re-open, everyone has to abide by the Covid restrictions…so…

Tough life being an Artist

_DSF0566qqq

A group of local Artists set up for a morning of “Plein Air” painting and sketching in the Hydrangea gardens.  This rather distinguished gentleman had found himself a shady spot.   Now I am not sure, if having his eyes closed meant, he was seeking inspiration, mentally visualising the scene … or simple  enjoying  a short snooze  🙂

Whatever you plan to do….

An Image of Hope………. just a little :-)

Disc One

Raining again today…..  We do have the promise that it will get back to weather much more like July summer weather next week..  Till then its more rain .

It all reminded me of an image of a shop front I spotted about 3 years ago.  It is a shop on the Harbourside at Portree, on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

The cynical will say….it always rains in Scotland.  Well, Scotland and the Isle of Skye certainly get their share of ‘weather’  …..  but I can confirm it also gets a great deal of sunshine too..

So maybe they named this shop very much with tongue in cheek .
