I am going to plant some narcissus and muscari as soon as I can and then in November, I will be tulip planting. That's one of the many things I enjoy about gardening - there is always something to look forward to.

At such a momentous time, with the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, I felt I needed to mark the occasion.

We now move on to inks and I am sure there will be lots more experimenting!
I have signed up to Wanderlust 2023 as I felt I wanted to continue my artistic journey and with the way things are going, I may well need that creative boost even more. I hope you'll enjoy coming along with me.

Tuesday 30th was a really sad day - we had to say goodbye to our lovely cat companion, Scruffy. He first came to us in 2011, when we were having a boiler installed, although he had been coming in and sleeping on the side in the kitchen before that and he chose to come and live with us. The vet thought he was about two. He had a skin condition which meant he needed steroid jabs every three months or so to control the itching. He was such a character!
He had an irregular heartbeat and we were warned that eventually it would catch up with him, but in the end, he stopped eating very much, and lost weight very quickly. He clearly wasn't himself at all. The vet checked him over and although his heart was irregular, it was OK, but she said there was a growth in his intestines which shouldn't have been there, so we had to make the difficult decision to ensure he wouldn't suffer any more.
The house feels so empty without him and it's the first time we have come back to a house with no cat in it since we have lived here. We are both just a little bit heartbroken. Rest peacefully, Scruffety-man ( or Munchkin or Darly Boy). We love you x.
