This week has been very pleasant, weather-wise. Beautiful, chilly mornings, stretching out into mild spring days.
Rose was inspired by a book she is reading; A Rock is Lively and sketched Lapis Lazuli
I am busy observing the meadow, which is so beautifully bursting into life.
Cuckoo Flower and Cherry blossom
Dandelion, Blackberry leaves, and Ribwort Plantain
In my Calendar of Firsts, I sketched our apple tree, which is in full bloom, promising lots of fruit for pies and crumbles. I also sketched a Pheasant; I keep spying them on the way to the stables with my daughters.
