I Think I'm Becoming Nocturnal

Oops! Where has the time gone again? I haven't written on here for ages.
I've been busy making wooden birds and hares, planning three greeting card designs and painting an owl, which I haven't photographed yet, so will hopefully be putting on in the next few days. My camera is not behaving itself at the moment and sometimes gives me a horrid black smudge on the pictures. I am thinking of treating myself to a new one which will help me capture instances such as these raindrops above with better clarity. If you could only smell them, they are divine, I can't pass them on my garden path without having a sniff.
I can't believe I am wide awake at this time! The children are on half term again and I've been bad, sleeping in late. Tommorow we are off to the seaside for the day (hubby has the day off) maybe I'll fall asleep in the car ???

Blue skies and polar bears

If I had to choose a favourite time of year, right now I would say May. Warm days , blue skies and apple blossom. The garden has been transformed into a 'fairie kingdom'. The air is perfumed with cowslips, forgetmenots, bluebells, white bells, cowparsley and honeysuckle.
Gentle breezes filled with birdsong blow petal snow onto a daisy covered lawn.
Amid all these joys of spring, my mind has been far away in a land of ice, creating bears.
