It's been a fair while since I last posted.
The winter months well gone, and the 'alleged' early summer months are in full flow.
I say 'alleged' as there's been so much rain even the May buds have been reluctant to burst-many of them are still hiding, waiting for the kiss of the sun.
It seems they may wait a while-though I'm hopeful that once the rain decides it's had enough the Sun will enthusiastically remind us what it's all about.
May, and all the celebrations it brings with it, is generally one of my very favorite times of the year but I have to admit feeling a bit washed out by this one.
At least some of the reservoirs might be replenished and the calls of drought subdued for a short period of time-one can but hope!
I did'nt intend to leave the blog quite so long.
My thinking about it swung between joining a challenge to post weekly and not feeling obligated to post all the time-the latter clearly won out!
I think I'd like to be a little more balanced about it though-and so will try and make it a little more regular.
It's given me time to potter about with things on the rare dry days.
Wreath making from some bits and pieces of left over Willow that stripped and have to work on when the Sun is kind
Some bits and pieces of magical making for a friend,
And honouring friends passed,
And carrying on with my project of mapping the land I'm fortunate enough to live in.
Even my local car park has a an old Pear Tree slap bang in the middle-park at your own risk in late August or you might get a dent in your roof!
I managed to get this pic of it early April when it was in full bloom-beautiful..
So there's lot's to do, and lot's of been doing.
And I'll try and post a little more regularly perhaps, if I get chance..
