In my travels by bus last week I spotted a knitting wool shop which looked very interesting, and I was looking for some black and some red yarn for a very special humpty, so yesterday I paid the shop a visit. It is real gem: a real old-fashioned needle craft shop in the most unlikely road. I found the yarns I was looking for, plus an amazing fluorescent green - it truly is almost luminous, although this is not evident from the photo! Then today I walked through Waterlow Park, and spotted this shrub with gorgeous red shoots of new growth next to a pink hellebore: spring is truly arrived : )

This month has boringly been largely consumed by bureaucracy. The good news is that come April, my accounts will be ready for Taxman!
Something more pleasurable that I have also been grappling with are "the sun and grasses and flowers" collages made from prepared water colour papers. The first one I did last year, and was not at all happy with the depth of the colours, or my skill with scissors! After I switched to using tubes of water colour paint, I decided to try again, and the other two are the result.
