whirling

It's that time again. When the whirly birds fall.








On walks I spend a lot of time looking down. And collecting the seeds to bring home and paint.










Not that I've been doing much painting. I've been spending most free hours in the garden. It's really coming along and it's really beginning to be beautiful. Each day I find more roses in bloom. Oh, that smell... I've been waiting so long for it to return.

What glimmer of beauty are you enjoying today?

  4. Lovely attention to detail in your paintings Anne. We call sycamore seeds (if that is what they are!) helicopters. I just love to throw them up in the air and watch them twirl as they fall to ground.
