People who are coming on the holidays this year at Alison House in Cromford will have received a newsletter from me and an update. I am really looking forward to the first holiday in June, not least because perhaps we will have warmer, kinder weather by then! Also my daughter Sophie will be arriving here from Seattle, USA early June and obviously I can’t wait to see her again.
Patchings Festival (6-9 June) has been on my mind too. Lots to think about for that…pictures to frame, workshops to advertise, demos to plan.
I’ve been putting my mind to the projects we will be doing in my weekly classes. In order to prepare properly I have to paint the subject myself or at least have done a lot of planning, sketching and trying out.
I’ve been looking at White Hellebores as it doesn’t seem possible to have them there in the garden and not to paint them. Here’s what I came up with.
