while I wait for the "crochet stones" to dry and be ready to fire here is another little idea .... from a small stone with a peculiar shape I made a mould to possibly use for some "pebble" vases ...

it has been a few days. during this time I spent my days working on a couple of orders for shops, kept up with some old friends, started a tiny vegetable plot (the first time I planted any vegetables) and enjoyed the most gorgeous days of spring. for many, many years I hadn't had such a closer and daily contact with spring. maybe because I live now in a more rural area, maybe because here the skies are wide and beautiful.
I'm still pretty busy now and may be absent for a few more days while preparing a website and develop some new work. meanwhile some more swallows are back in stock here
see you soon! enjoy spring ...

I don't seem to be able to refrain from photographing flowers these days.
spring is offering its best. I have been working by the open window, listening to the different bird songs all day, observing the change in trees, visible everyday.
just last week the peach trees were covered by the most awesome dark pink flowers. by now they are green full of tender leaves.
everywhere the scent of flowers.
every late afternoon I spend sometime in the park feeling the sun going down and the quiet breeze. days are so much longer now, by past 8 pm it is still daylight.
what a joy these days have been!
