Baobabs – a painting a day

   5″x4″ 12.5cm x 11cm etching print on heavyweight rag paper

Sorry, that was rather a murky photo yesterday.

Have got back from away. Shropshire is absolutely lovely and travelling through Warwickshire there are so many things to see, it’s always the way when you travel enticing views and buildings flash by, a baroque church, an old tower that looked like the space shuttle, a powder blue cottage with mullion windows ,medieval black and white cottages and town houses stooping over the road. You always mean to return and have a better look sometime but…

I cannot believe how many red kites I saw from the car, seven going and ten going back plus several buzzards and on Tuesday evening two dippers in the river at Ludlow.

It was a perfect week to travel everything a spring requires was there in abundance on the roadside, blackthorn, primroses, cowslips and daffodils planted in the town and along the motorway in places.

It was an area I had not been to since I walked from Malvern to Ludlow as a student. Then Ludlow was beautiful but not fashionable and there were Georgian houses on the road up to the castle on sale for £10,000-£12,000, which although out of reach even once I got my first job was similar to the price of terraces elsewhere, Cemetery Junction even(the same one as in the new film).

The garden is changed even after such a short time away, daffodils finishing tulips coming in pieris coming into leaf.
