Blogging Break

This was the sight that greeted me in the woods today - beautiful pink blossom.....

lots of birds and signs of new nest building - which inspired me to paint this little bluetit

Beautiful mossy bark

The remains of my eggy wreath

Another dabble with the paints

and a last lingering look at the woods

Until next time ....... which will be a little while.  I need a blogging break as real world has a lot going on - so will post last day of the month during Spring and Summer, I will catch up with your blogs monthly too so still here but a little quieter.  I really appreciate followers and visitors to my blog and love to receive comments - thankyou (I will reply on the same post if you leave one) ...  hope you will still stop by for my monthly update.
Bye for now.


  1. Lovely photos.
    Like you, I'm taking a break, and will come back fresher....I hope!

  2. Great start to Spring Betty and we loved the egg wreath. Pawsome idea for next Easter. No worries we will see you when we see you. Have a good time whilst you are away. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    1. Thanks Molly - I will still look forward to your funny posts.

  3. I've taken breaks now and then as life takes some twists and turns and there never enough time to blog and do what needs to be done. I have the same problem.
    I'll see you when you come back. Enjoy your break.

    1. Thanks JUlia - hope you get some quiet time lined up too.

  4. Some lovely paintings there. Hope you are enjoying the course. Real life is always better lived than blogged, so will watch out at the end of the month for all your news.

    1. Thanks Carolyn - I do need a bit more real life, you put it very well!

  5. I love the delicateness of your watercolours.
    Missing you already!
    Have a good break.x

  6. It's ok to take break from blogging :) Enjoy your life!

  7. We all deserve a break, I for sure am having one as well and just dipping my toes into the blogging world. It is that time of year when everything wakes up including life itself and other aspects take over. For us it is our garden both flower and vegetable that is taking our time away. The warm weather means we can get beds finished and filled, seeds sown (greenhouse of course) and get our boys out in the fresh air without being frozen.

    I will certainly still read your monthly updates as finding time to sit and read several posts a week of each blog is becoming more and more difficult.

    I hope you enjoy whatever the spring & summer brings your way.

    Warm Blessings

    1. Thanks Rebecca - that's exactly it - I find it hard to visit everyones blogs that I follow/follow me and leave comments as there as so many posts! Then things aren't getting done. It will be good to slow down.

  8. All the best to you on your break, Betty. Be sure and let us know what's happening with you, like you say. I look forward to that!
    I definitely found it useful to step back and review things during my bloggy break last year.

  9. Have a great break Betty and I'm looking forward to hearing your updates.
