EARLY SNOWDROPS IN NORFOLK
Its been a glorious sunny January, bright blue sky day today and I went for a walk by the river in my Norfolk village. Alongside were thousands of snowdrops and yellow aconites in full bloom dotted amonst the trees and grass. I cant believe I went out on such a day without my sketchbook or my camera, so to remind you (and me) of how delecate these blooms are I have posted an image of a painting I did a couple of winter's ago after digging out some roots with a plastic spoon I had with a yoghurt in the car when I was driving through Lincolnshire!!! It was getting dark and I had to have the headlights on to see what I as doing. I only took a small handful to keep fresh for me to paint the following day. I put them in a small vase on my dressing table. I was pleased with the lace!
