Five Hundred Days Later…


… I have finally found a way to continue my wallpaper, that is both practical and yields clear-edged results! HOORAY!
I just had to share the news, but will write more about the method, and the looong way there, later on.


Bees and Butterflies!

We’ve had quite the incredibly summer-ish first day of spring today, and while I was toiling away in the garden, I was astonished by the number of feral bees out and about! They seem to remember the slightly insane amount of borago officinalis I sowed for them last year, but for now, they’re pretty happy with the little crocuses, lenten hellebore and, of course, all the willow catkin.
This gives me hope for maybe starting keeping my own bees this year šŸ™‚

I also saw this year’s frist two butterflies, a brimstone butterfly, and a small tortoiseshell.

What a briliant day!



Again something that doesn’t quite fit into the blog’s subheading. But it definitely was procrastination, and at least kind of productive. I mean, there IS a product, after all šŸ˜‰

IĀ  can draw passably, as long as you don’t give me anything with colours. Painting (anything that has to do with a brush, and is not excavating prehistoric remains…) is not my forte anyway, but there it’s even more conspicuous that am crap at colours. Unfortunately.

Unfortunately, I nonetheless love colours, particularly oil and watercolours – and drawing portraits. So that is, how this came about. The gentlemen, whose recognisability I admit might be impaired by the entirely self-inflicted lack of a preparatory sketch, are Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.
