Bees in the meadow

Over the past few weeks, whilst the weather was still fine, I sat watching the bees buzzing around catching the last of the nectar.  Our garden is in a dip so whilst we take a few weeks longer to warm up in spring the flip side of this is our autumns feel a few weeks longer and we still had lots of flowers and autumnal colour.  Shame it doesn’t last just a bit longer.

Hola llama

I wish I had a pet Llama,
I’d walk him through the mountains everyday,
Picking flowers and saying Hola to everyone we meet.
Only stopping to drink at the water fountain and play.

 

Collection inspired by our local llamas who always nod hello when we pass by. The friendly threesome happily pose for a few sketches.

Spring alternative colours

Spring is a little fickle at the moment, one day glorious sunshine and green leaves budding with blooms in full floweriness and the next day, cold and grey and soggy fallen petals.  So ever the optimist lets shout out SPRING with a new collection of patterns and colours inspired from a few blooms I have outside.

Bows ties and puppies

love-bows-dogs-patternandco

Little pink puppy loves green bows in her hair,

She ties them with great care.

Brown dog likes big blue bow ties,

They match her soft fur and beautiful eyes.

All puppies look smart with a bow tied just eyeweardock right.
