The sensational Brotherton Library at Leeds University . I saw this yesterday when I took Jess to the uni open day . What a fantastic campus this Uni has full of fascinating old and new buildings and beautifully planned out green spaces . Very impressed !
Sipping violet gin in a hotel room catching up with my sister and feeling good x
Looking after the sweetest doggie Maxie x He is small friendly and cute as anything !!
Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham . What a lovely place I wish I could have gone there when the AAS exhibition was on ! Picked up my paintings today from here . A300 mile round trip but worth it to enjoy the landscape across the A66 on a beautiful May Day .
Met a family of four Spinone dogs today . I did not know about this breed . They are Italian gun dogs and we’re all very beautiful .
Barry M gel nail polish in Matcha . A v good colour !! Love it .
My lovely Jess and her boyfriend have helped me today in the garden . This has meant so much to me as I have had little motivation and I usually love my garden . In the process of clearing and cutting we rediscovered the ‘skunk cabbage ‘ plant in the pond and disturbed the frogs .
We have a blackbirds nest in the ivy . I heard the baby birds . There must be quite a few of them . Intermittent bubbles of peeping ! If you stand in the garden and look up into the ribes shrub you can see mums head as she sits in the nest . Beautiful !!!
I was given some new pillows today . I have also bought myself some new grey bedding . This is one of life’s small pleasures x
The blank Russian Doll waiting to be painted for the beautiful Ella
A greetings card by Gordon Close . I bought this ages ago and it is waiting to be sent . I just don’t want to let go of it because I love the style so much . I must look up this Artist . I would say 40s or 50s from the style .
