This week I had a vase of hyacinth, anemone narcissus and tulip and had a quiet moment today to paint these with my watercolour pencils, which I was given for my birthday. There were 72 colours in the tin so no effort needed to mix or blend colours, plenty of choice.
Today my gym class was cancelled so instead hubby and I had a Spring walk into the woods by the windmill near here to see the wood anemones. There were also signs of bluebells, just a couple here and there, and some wild violets too.
Up at Badger Kingdom there was no sign of life,but I found lots of beautiful wood anemones were open...I will come back to see the bluebells in a few weeks as their greens are coming up nicely.
We met horses on the route and families out walking their dogs, everyone is very friendly when they are out. Some people told us the narrow,bumpy woodland path (no more than 10 feet wideat best with ditches on both sides) has been used recently for racing 4x4 cars and a horse narrowly missed being hit at high speed. This is upsetting locals as they want the lane to be closed to traffic; the byways were made years ago when there was little traffic other than horses and carts and well before the cars we drive these days had even been invented.
I have been taking little moments lately to dabble with some watercolours ... as I work shifts I get some nice little chunks of time during the day when I can just settle down and do this, it's easy to get distracted with housework of course, so I am trying to make it a regular thing. Don't you think it's important to have creative time?
So, this was a very relaxed weekend for us. Sorry I don't have more to tell you. It's been a really quiet time for us here. how was your weekend? Have you seen signs of the Seasons changing where you live?
