Talking not Doing

Making Stars

New term, new opportunities in the print studio. After last years buzzing around chasing butterflies, I would like to settle down and produce something a little more coherent. Last year was a good foundation, but now I would like to go back and pick up some of my dropped stitches and see where they take me.

Enough mixed metaphors. Andiamo! Read the rest of this entry »

August Hiatus

This is definitely a time travel Wednesday post. Real Life certainly got in the way of the second half of August. I spent far to much time bimbling in the Surrey Hills with aged relatives. Which would have been nice if I could have stopped for some drawing or some such.

Like the time we went to Leith Hill and it was so misty you couldn’t see the top of the tower from the bottom…

If I ever do manage to rough out/ get to finish the ideas I’ve had during this time I’ll come back and stick some pictures in this space.

thanks for your patience

Cactus up date

All  the succulents I purchased a few years ago are doing well. Some of the mammillaria flower every year, but this one I didn’t expect to flower until it was a lot bigger. What do I know?

cactus bud

Any way this flower stalk has appeared over the last few days. It’s either happy or desperate. If it manages to flower all the way I’ll update this.Then I might be able to identify it.  Go here to see how much it’s grown from the original 1.5 inch pot.

Up date, (28 July)well I all ready tried to update this post once so I’m rapidly loosing interest here. I think the cactus is Echinopsis Subdenudata f Fuzzy Navel. Here are this weeks blooms. They are huge 8cm about the same size as the plant. The flower stalks are ~13cm. I think this chap was the worst off with an encounter with a ferocactus, not the one you can see next to it, and decided to go for it. I just sorry I don’t have the night flying pollinators it needs.

I think I’m going to have to rethink my storage facility when I repot some of these chaps, they are growing well.

Arte Postale – to be sent
