Christmas 2012

Christmas has been a bit of a whirlwind this year as my Mum has just moved into her retirement flat across the road from us. It was all very hectic as she had lived in the same house in London for 62 years and so had to get rid of lots of furniture and belongings. But she’s in now and, although surrounded by boxes, the flat looks very cosy.

I haven’t been able to do much painting so am looking forward to life getting back to normal soon and to seeing some flowers in the garden again. I visited Parsonage Gardens recently and met the volunteers who had created the wildflower meadow there this Summer. They were thrilled to see my paintings, prints and cards which were inspired by this garden. It was a cold day but they were all working very hard and doing a wonderful job. These volunteers are even more important than they used to be as there are no longer gardeners from the council working there and a private firm does little more than mow the lawn!
