Hedges and field edges.

 Still no news from the National Trust at Newark park but they are having a meeting at the end of the week and I should hear something on Monday. Meanwhile I am carrying on with this piece about the footpaths and hedges around here which I so love.
 After another snowy weekend and freezing mornings we have had some sunshine and there are shoots appearing on the edges of the lanes. The hedges still look bare and devastated by the machines that cut them so drastically and flay the branches. They will recover like a bad hair cut but Archie the old farmer next door who died a few years back used to cut and lay them so beautifully.
 It has been a struggle to find the answers for this piece but I am now filling in the field textures and am getting there.
 Finally my Christmas present from my son flowered this week
and I put a few primroses in a tiny vase to remind myself that Spring is just around the corner. ( a children's book about frog and toad asked yes but which corner?) Here's to finding that corner!

    1. There is a Follow tab on the side bar below About me. You may have to use Google to get the blog with a side bar rather than blogger.

    1. Thanks this piece has been a difficult one. I started with gusto and then lost the way. Think I have found the path again now.
