May, feels like I'm juggling with plates !

I'm trying to get paintings done for an exhibition in July. Here I have one of various blossoms ( apple, cherry and pear ) I fear it is too chocolate boxy !!? A view from the hill behind our house, both acrylics, and a water colour of some pansies.

I am also experimenting with different flavours in my cold pressed rape seed oil, so far I have lemon, chilli, garlic, rosemary and basil. It's fun to test out new products !

The bees are busy and I am hoping for a good honey harvest this year.

The hens are laying and happy, so daft and adorable !!

Hens !

I have been asked to stand at the local hen keepers annual Spring show / sale this weekend. I will be mostly pushing the cold pressed rape seed oil ( now with lemon too !) . Also advertising the fact that I have wheat and crushed barley and oats with which to feed the little cluckers !! But I thought I should have something else that was henny ! The potato printed cards were not my idea, but I have always enjoyed potato printing !

Is it 2011 already !

One post in 2010 !! Terrible, but my excuse is a busy year what with one thing the rapeseed oil and the farm shop ! Anyway, I will try harder. I should think anybody has given up on me by now, but ....
We have had another hard winter, but now it feels hopefull and that we are heading in the right direction for Spring ! I always long for colour at this time, and last week couldn't stop myself from buying some pretty pansies, and doing some little water colours whilst sitting in the farm shop ( a quiet week !)
