deepening season…

The meadows where we walk are changing. As some flowers and grasses die back new ones emerge. Seeds are ripening and dispersing. It is a mix of colours – many pops of pinks, some purples / mauves as well as dusty yellows and neutral sandy beiges

The blackberry flowers are out, but the wind meant capturing a blurred image. It made me think how often images are blurred when walking. Insects move so fast my eyes catch a hazy impression which makes identifying species tricky! I could have waited for the wind to pause, but this is what my eyes see of the blackberry flowers

More butterflies now in the meadows and garden, and bees of all kinds in the lavender and teasels

Working on 2 quilts – 2 more in my mind. Field recordings, natural finds, a dye pot in the making.
