Magic Wings

 

Having completed a five month creative bootcamp late July, I found myself in quandry—what to do next? I wasn't planning on going away, the weeds in the garden could continue their rampage (at least for a few more weeks) and the Summer holidays were still in full swing. I missed the early Monday morning assignments and the camaraderie of my fellow students...

Yesterday, ahead of deadline, I uploaded my completed Home Decor assignment for week one of a five week course. Designed for the substrate: metal, with a theme of birds.

A serial student I am, but this means yet another piece for the portfolio and I'm in creative heaven!

Said It

 

 

So... the cat is out of the bag, I've gone and said it—so it must be true. It's the thin edge of the wedge, but at least I know it's real. I can almost touch it, see it, feel it, smell it—or is that weird?

Want to find out what an earth I'm talking about? Follow this link—I SAID IT!

Don't worry it isn't anything nasty and won't bite. Let me know what you think.

'Holly, can you do that later? I need some help with the deliveries!' said Botticelli.

Currant Fare

I wan't planning on gardening today, but you know how it goes? Pick up a leaf and throw a twig in a bucket and before you know it, you have a pair of secateurs in hand, a mission and everything gets pruned!

The blackcurrants certainly did need picking, but it doesn't end at that. The plant then has to be cut back right back, leaving the new branches for the next season. In the moment, I thought why not—take the time? Repetitive, mantra-like, as I plucked the tiny, purple, vitamin C bombs from the branches, I found myself thinking about how, I inevitably was destroying the habitat of some bug or other. I could feel the reproach, from an enormous grey spider, swinging from the remmnants of her web and of the bright green grasshoppers, pinging all over the place. A plastic-looking earwig looked quite pissed off, or maybe it's just their demeanor. All had to relocate, with one consolation, I left the berries that fell for any passing takers. Immediately, a big fat slug, smelling the berries, advanced (with amazing speed for slug) out of the poppies, to claim and gorge itself on a berry bigger than its head.

My prize, the berries you see in the photo above, weighing in at a grand 340g. As I sit on the garden bench relaxing, I wonder what will be next on the harvest agenda, before the leaves start to fall: tomatoes, grapes, blackberries...
