Double Hellebore – a painting a day

   4.5″x6″ 11cm x 15cm watercolour on heavyweight rag paper

This picture is quite botanical; the double hellebore flowers are absolutely exquisite.

Today I made the soup with the remains of the goose and the some ham plus stock, also in it were four leeks , a potato, a carrot, pasta, herbs and a reduction of white wine and sherry… really good.

In the garden it was hot and sunny the most beautiful day of the year so far, so what did we do? Yes we, I banned all forms of entertainment involving electricity until dusk and set to on two projects with the boys, yeh, they did grumble- almost nonstop. However we did spring clean the small shed and I found cooking apples still good from the Newton Wonder tree and shallots still good. I also found one of my favourite paint brushes and any number of spider webs. We also cut back the hedge and cleared it up. It makes a huge difference doing stuff in a gang. No2 son also got out the new tent and put it up, its really very good for £25.00 it’s got an inner tent and ventilation.

The postman stopped for a chat and thought I was being uncommonly mean as we cut the hedge…he did not think they looked happy…am I supposed to make them happy I could have asked.
