From my November Garden
When I looked round the garden to see what would feature this month I was a bit stuck for ideas – my garden is very much a Spring and Summer garden, and come November there is not much flowering except for the sedums in the gravel garden – which are not very paintable – and the fuchsias which I did last month. But I do have a lot of trees. So this is what I came up with . . . .
You may be able to spot hazel, hawthorn, silver birch, dogwood, wych-hazel and sumach – and a couple of others that I think must have blown over the fence! All the details on the Gallery 2015 page as usual.
Next up, I’m painting the third of my Peddars Way pictures – in rather an experimental way. So it’s anyone’s guess how it will turn out. And then another dinghy – an old tatty one with nice reflections that I found at West Mersea in October.
The Christmas Cake, by the way, is baked, pricked all over and a little more brandy trickled in, and it’s now on the bottom shelf of the pantry wrapped in a double layer of aluminium foil inside it’s tin, where it can stay until the week before Christmas. Although I may heave it out and add a little more brandy before then . . . .
Happy Bonfire night 🙂 Friday tomorrow!
