Allotment #12 Rose Avenue/Tamworth Farm

Made a start on my plot this evening! There is MUCH to do.
Pitched up with my fork attached!
The weeds are easy to yank out
But there's much to do!

Managed a bit though this evening, a little here and there and should hopefully uproot most of it this week...

And there's Gav in his plot next door! 

Rough sketches

 Rough sketches for Rose Red and Snow White!

And even though totally unrelated, I had SOOOOoo many beans to come back too after Green Man Festival!

A mini break at the Green Man Festival!

I've been away for a long weekend at the Green Man Festival! It was AMAZING! Popped back to my parents Weds night and nephew-sat Thursday morning until Uncle/Dad Ed pitched up and my Mam!
Read lots of stories whilst they drew what I was reading :)

As for Green Man, the weather behaved very well, and I saw my faves Kings of Convenience, and British Sea Power but Matt Berry on Thursday night was incredible!!
The festival is in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, nestled in the Beacons

Me and my favourites :)

(Love Yan, he is so handsome!) 


Wuthering Heights doodle!

Just caught it on the tv whilst sketching and couldn't resist! Laurence Olivier was so awfully handsome then!


Some more Rose Red and Snow White and Big Face Mustachio Cat!


Still working on trend projects!

So I'm still away from Illustrating for a wee  longer as I'm finishing off moods for Lurex. Feeling awfully guilty not illustrating. But in the meantime, this has happened.
My rose has re-flowered and my sweet peas are still going...

Dragonfly loves my french beans...

Popped back to Hereford and bumped into Jessica Johnson who I know from a decade ago whose work is aces! 

Big Face Mustachio Cat has made an appearance after a two week absence! Samson did a half arsed effort of shooing him away.

I made this fella from a free pattern off the internet for my best chum Caths b.day!

And at Hotham where she lives I helped the sister in law Hatty make her train b.day cake! :D Chocolate sponge train, meringue steam and courgette with lemon icing trucks and banoffe with peanut butter icing bigger trucks filled with sweeties! 

Meanwhile my garden is still blooming!

Had to tie the voodoo lilly to the side as it was shadowing everything it's got so big!

Very pleased with my Larkspur I grew from seed

I've had terrible trouble with tiny snails eating my bean leaves and my hollyhocks!
