Spring has Sprung...

...the flooers is ris,
I wonder where the birdies is?
Oh, there's a crow up in the sky,
Yeuch, he's dropped a message
in my eye!

Time for this Rip van Winkle to get oot his bed, shake a leg, and get back to some work. Winter is over even in these northerly parts and I've even ventured out to the back garden to see what damage has been done with the frequent high winds. Like this Helleborus knocked flat but still managing a smile and a few flooers to brighten an otherwise untidy border:

Helleborus, felt pen and Neocolour on paper, 2x19x25cm.

Hope the rest of you have survived the winter too!

Hurrah! you've returned! I missed you and seeing all your lovely work. Welcome back. (I hope the eye isn't too paintful - bad bird!;o)

I have now taken to wearing an eye-patch like some modern-day Jack Sparrow and carrying a gun. If I ever see that pesky crow again (with my good eye) I'll blast his tail-feathers right off his bahookie!

Glad to be back, Lisa. Hope to make your visits worthwhile :o)
