This painting was inspired by my father-in-laws farm. My husband, as a boy, painted all the woodwork on the farm red one summer. Now the buildings are slowly being replaced with new modern ones and the traditional styles are all disappearing. I had to paint this window before it disappeared too.

I have just completely changed my front garden with the help of donations from my Mum. But. Whenever you get plants from her garden, there are always a few hidden gems among the plants. In this case not only did I gain grasses, I got a number of Californian Poppies which are happily reseeding themselves in their new home.
These wee pansies were growing in a pot at Horatio’s Garden and I couldn’t resist them. They were a wonderful splash of colour just before everything else came to life this Spring.
I have always created my own websites, but the last one was a nightmare to edit and keep up to date. Now I have new software and I settled to work on something that is so much more manageable.
I’d appreciate any comments you have (especially if you find links that aren’t working), and let me know what you think.
