Well January has passed and its nearly spring (haha), with newly germinated leek, viola, celeriac and calendula seeds in the polytunnel. The sheep and chickens are not enjoying the weather or the mud but the goats are thriving – they are lucky to be housed in a dry byre with lots of straw and food to eat.
So I’ve begun an online botanical art course (should have done this years ago) I have high hopes for this one. Heres a pic of something new I’ve learnt – hand sharpening my pencils. I think they look neat.
