|We really enjoyed our visit here, time for lots of lovely long chats|
|We just loved the great idea of following the routes around the city, |
especially visiting such lovely places
|The poppies really were beautiful to see - sometimes what seemed like full fields of just poppies!|
|Not quite the highlight of the visit but I really was looking forward to seeing the hoopoe!|
We had quite a busy weekend, on our way to the caravan we took a detour to see my lovely friend Gez doing her first ever demo! Needless to say she was doing such wonderful things with her Gelli Plate that even though she said she was nervous it certainly didn't show in her examples! I came away with some great ideas and wishing I'd brought my plate away with me!!
I bought a few 'essentials' too!!
My son and grandchildren arrived in time for tea and on Sunday morning we set off around the Silverdale Art Trail - lots of open studios and houses, venues where there were workshops and demonstrations as well as lots of work for sale!
I signed up for a mixed media workshop for next Saturday and hubby and I both signed up to attend an encaustic art taster later in the week!
Now all I have to do is get some gardening done! I dug up some buttercups this afternoon, I know they are pretty but they were choking some of my plants, the ivy is going to get the same treatment if the weather lets me!
Thanks for looking, Chris
