The Pothole Gardener

I have been neglecting you for the past while, Just busy times.
I saw this the other day.. Steve Wheens imaginative gardening in East London and the reaction to it. It made me smile.

Ah summer, Where are you?

Still raining here, I think we have broken all records now for summer rain fall. But it does make the hedgerows grow, here are a few pictures I took last week in Connemara when the sun appeared for a few seconds.
The Gorse is finishing but the Fuchsia is in full bloom and the and Montbretia is appearing





I took all of these photos in Shanakeela a town land between Maam Cross and Recess in Connemara. It was mid morning and as I looked up the road I took the photo below, an image of an ideal life, one man and his dog.


I have painted this place, I love the conifers on the top of the hill, I have shown you the painting before but for those that have not seen it  here is the print of it and it is available to buy over at Design Basket

Second A.L.A.W.

I was a bit slow getting started on my second alphabet for A Letter a Week mainly because I could not think  of a format. I tried various ideas. Firstly Big and Bold



Then I tried cutting the letter out but I found that too difficult and knew I'd never finish it.

 Then I tried something more technical, which I enjoyed doing but I made the mistake of only having a small amount of the paper so I'd have to start it again with different paper if I was to reach "Z" and I did not want to do that.

eventually I decided to go with this

You can see more of it and the other alphabets over at A.L.A.W.
Have a good weekend.
