Well the weather is warming up and Easter has been and gone. Hopefully we have seen the last of the snow and are looking forward to seeing a lot more sunshine.
The Easter has seen me very busy in the garden and in the greenhouse planting many seeds and getting rid of dead branches and leaves.
It’s nice to see one of my photographs of Helmsley Walled Garden used for the Helmsley Magna Carta Trophy.
I have visited and photographed many places over the last few weeks; The Homestead, Yorkshire Lavender, Nunnington Hall, St Anthony’s Garden, Yorkshire Arboretum, Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens, York and RHS Harlow Carr Gardens. They always look better in the warmth than on freezing cold days and a lot more colour is starting to appear.
This week has seen me having my first craft fair which I thoroughly enjoyed. Meeting new people and talking to them about my cards and photography – I could do that everyday!
