This week a friend hosted an 'Art Week' in her glorious garden. Her artist and maker friends sketched and painted with all this inspiration around them.
So much to see. As we sat chatting half way up the garden three green finches swooped and fed just a stone's throw away.
I love the colour and smooth texture of this gate against the pale stone wall.
What a paradise! Stone steps lead up through the garden to a vegetable plot beyond a gate at the top. Everywhere there is detail and decoration -smooth sun bleached wood on end as sculpture; chain arches and an amusing scarecrow made of threaded together plant pots. This garden could only have been created by an artist. It is a wonderful achievement.
