Snowdrops are everywhere - in the woods, in the meadows - quite breathtaking. Here are some pics.
I have to say that my small garden can beat them for hellebores - we seem to be good at those.
The back was not bad but I didn’t walk for too long. I was very tempted to hijack one of the disabled scooters that they provide. We got one for Val once, when we were running a course on digital photography, and she was a terrible danger to life and limb. Clive was the only one who could manoeuvre the thing so she had to hop off at every corner, which rather defeated the object. Good fun, though.

Chrissythreads - thank you so much for the Prism CD - it looks a wonderful show. Wish I could have gone but this is the next best thing.
Kate - I shall look for Ben Fogle - sounds good. At that time of day Clive and I are usually trying to both finish work at the same time so that we can eat. It’s not easy - I say to him ‘How long will you be?’ He then says twenty minutes, so I go off and do something that takes thirty. By then he’s started something else. And so it goes on. Perhaps this show will give us something to aim for.
Sally - making pics bigger used to be easy before Windows Vista. They take an age to load now so I’m limited to a maximum of 600 pixels in any direction. Anyone else have this problem?
I love this quote on your profile. ‘I have got to an age when I look in the mirror, I see my mother’. Did you ever see the Billy Connolly show where he was talking about being in a very opulent hotel suite with a huge mirror over the bed. He said it was a real passion killer when he looked up and saw his mother watching!
Elli - come back to us - we want to see your corsets! Also pics of the studio.
Wabbit - sorry to hear that your Bernina doesn’t have the necessary buttons. Hope that is not the way they are going. What model is yours? Mine’s a 640.
I like this designing by committee - good fun. I shall effectively be placing another layer behind when the piece is mounted. I shall probably use a weighty board with tissue paper glued and painted and then mica mortar and copper wax to glow through from the back.
I have had a bit of a revelation about the piece and hope to show the finished article next time I blog. In the meantime Stevens finds it a good place for a wash.
