Rockpools rock!!

Ever since I was a child, rock pools have held a fascination for me, with their tiny world within a world. I still collect seaweed, pebbles and sea shells.

I love the way the sun plays on the water, creating dappled ripples. How do you like my jelly fruity sandals? Perfect for a stoney seabed!

You don't have to be a child to gain inspiration, from a fun day at the beach .

My images were taken in Kefalonia, Cornwall and my studio!

Birds of a feather!!!

As you may have noticed, I do love feathers and plumes!

They look just fine in their natural setting, though "talulahblue" has other ideas for them.

Ostrich, Peacock, marabou and hackle..They all find a place in the workshop.

Many thanks to Chrys Columbine,

our pin up and to photographer Neil Williams.

Butterflies and feathers

From the Chambers pocket dictionary, on the meaning of unnatural, I quote, "contrary to the way things usually happen in nature". I thought you may enjoy a few more garden pics, if things were a little more exotic...

My jardin

" An imaginary garden began to appear, through an archway of birch, with the promise of orchards, roses and vines ",

part of a short poem, written by yours truly.
Mr Tony and I spent a couple of years working on our garden to get it ship shape.
It was just an expance of old lawn, when we moved into our home.
The garden mostly looks after itsself these days and at five years old, is coming into maturity.
My daughter gave me the floral trowel as a birthday gift this month {don't ask!!}.
A haven for people, cats, foxes , birds , bees and " hair bows! "

Pirates and Peacocks

It's always a rush, getting ready to go out, even more so when you have a show to put on.
Amber and Chrys prepare to perform in and manage, "Pirates and Peacocks" summer ball in June .
