"Sweet April showers do spring May flowers." ~ Thomas Tusser
I love the sound of April rain pattering on my umbrella!
I know, it's April already, how did that happen?
All these different weather happenings reminded me of a wee poem from my childhood
Whether the weather be fine, Whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold, Whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather, Whatever the whether,
Whether we like it or not
I'm also loving my woodland walks & feeling Mother Nature really stirring now
everything is sprouting and i am endlessly fascinated by all the different greens,
they are inspiring ideas for a Spring painting too.
We have a wonderful daffodil lane by the cottage, a row of brightest sunshine
and even on the cloudiest day, it always makes me happy.
And of course I had been keeping my eye on the wild garlic, and soon had some picked. We used some of the young leaves to add lovely flavour to a salad & I'm going to make pesto too. Here is a link to an easy recipe for ~ Wild Garlic Pesto
Things are sprouting and growing and Spring is most definitely here at last.
I have been sprouting things too, exciting new ideas here in my studio!
They are not quite ready to share yet, but I can give you a hint . . .
I am putting together a whole series of "creative play" workshops!
Do you have any thoughts on what you would love to "play" with creatively?
