For a Christening

March 17, 2014 Leave a comment


We went to a christening in London yesterday and this is what I did for the little girl who was being christened. The name is quite well camouflaged in the picture. As luck would have it the weather was perfect and the capital was in bloom already. Pear trees,cherry trees, plums and great swathes of Clematis armandii. The trains were rubbish however with multiple engineering works, we threaded our way out to the Brighton line in the oddest way and not even in the same way we had got through getting into Victoria.


String of acorns – a painting a day

So after the lemons I went back to the garden for a little string of acorns that made me think of winter, it’s still quite wintery at times although the daffodils are actually out. The’ February Gold’ opened three weeks into March which has happened before but recently it had been living up to its name and opening in February. There were no free daffodils from the roundabout this year for the cheeky kids who pick them  on Mothers Day, none open; still at least their Mums get flowers most years , I get a cup of tea in bed followed if I’m lucky by breakfast in bed . The best part about it is listening to the arguments and flaps downstairs I have to brace myself not to go down and sort it all out sometimes.
