Chez nous.

Une autre journée brillante dans le jardin. Je suis très contente que l’été arrive. L'hiver passé était trop long!

Merci à ma conjointe!

As you may have guessed, I’m very much enjoying the potted plants this spring, merci à ma conjointe.

Also, I am testing out my new water brush. For those of you (including myself until recently) who are unfamiliar with this gadget - it’s a brush with a built-in water reservoir. Great for water colour sketching ‘in the field’. It eliminates the need for open containers of water. Just a squeeze of the handle wets the brush. Marvellous!

"June is a bustin' out all over!"

At last, summer is here after weeks of cold wet weather. The garden is verdant and all the plants are lush and shining with new growth.
