I haven't looked at this blog for five months. I was going to start a new one, but decided to re-jig this one instead. Unfortunately I had artists block and felt that time spent in my studio was, quite frankly, ill-used! Over the winter, I was creative in other ways and my friend, Ruth and I made a new pond in my back garden. Ruth did all the back-breaking digging, for which I am very grateful. It's been great watching it emerge as a living, breathing wild-life space. It is now full of tadpoles and frogs. There are lots of different sorts of snails and I think I might have seen a pond skater yesterday. Watch this space!!
