Bollington, Brigsteer and Bluebells

My two exhibitions in Bollington and Brigsteer have finished now and so I’ve been able to get back to painting. A friend from art college days has been to stay. She lives in London and it was her first trip out of the city for a year. She really enjoyed having a complete change of scene and as the weather was so good we spent a couple of days painting outside.

One day while in Sedbergh we spotted a sign for an Open Garden. It was just through a gate off the car park in Sedbergh, and it was glorious. There were 2 acres of garden including a courtyard full of tulips and anemones and a bluebell wood. I couldn’t believe it was there just tucked behind the car park. The lady owner used to be a textile designer, like Gill and me and invited us to stay and paint. It was a lovely find.
