Plants of the Month
Now in full bloom and one of my favourite garden shrubs bringing flowers, perfume and food for any emerging bees over the dark Winter months. I wish every garden had one.
This is the third year I have used this lovely eco-friendly wooden Christmas wreath. This year I have decorated it with berries from my garden plus two little decorative robins. It has been much admired and I think more will appear next year!
I had company too! A young robin followed me all round the garden and then perched on a plant support to watch me decorate the wreath. He was so tame and seemed to enjoy posing for the camera

It is always lovely to respond to a customer request and I was able to produce a new pen and watercolour picture of St. John the Baptist Church, Sully, as a Christmas present for his son. It is based on my existing black and white drawing. The old yew trees have now been removed but he was happy with the original version.
Please don't ever be afraid to ask me for something not on display, if it can be done, I will do it. It has been a real bonus for me, I am delighted to have a new print to add to my collection and have since sold a couple more.
I have a small number of New Year cards in stock, English language only at present but I am hoping to rectify that next year. It is lovely that people still send them.
