What a whizz of a week its been. We've had sunshine, snow and wind, had a dipping internet that meant our food order didn't arrive on Saturday as usual, I had news of new stamps to arrive from Crafty Individuals (from the sneaky peeks they looks amazing)and hubby and I have completed another Wanderlust spread(and almost completed another!)
Last week's class was by Nicole Warrington, a fabulous landscape artist.
We had to draw a tree (a spirit tree) that meant something to us. You may remember that after hubby's Covid jab we went for a short walk.
When I saw this tree stretching up in the blue sky it really did give me a feeling of lightness and of hope that things really were going to get better.Hubby chose a tree that we saw when we went out with my son(his stepson)in Wythenshaw Park. A tree we often see that in Winter seems to stretch out it's arms for a hug - something we can't do with others just yet!
We looked for book words to go along with our drawing.
We both enjoyed this lesson and were quite happy with our pages.
Last week we went to Fletcher Moss again. We kept up a fairly brisk pace around the wooded area although we did stop to listen to the birds and to watch a couple of treecreepers
Everything is looking a lot greener!
Just beside the gate into the garden were Primroses and Bluebells
This is the Acer that turned such beautiful colours last Autumn
The leaves right at the top of this tree are turning green
From here we decided to have a quick look in the Parsonage GardensI nipped outside the corner gate for this pic
I don't think I have ever seen Hyacinths this colour
The window art display has changed...even from last week, when it was covered in big flies!
Can you see them in these next two pics?
The frost has turned the Magnolia flowers brown
