Bees are my companions among the mass of flowers in the garden and the honey bees have also taken up residence in my house as you can see in the video.
Foxgloves are flowering on the coast, in the hedgerows and in my garden. My foxglove ambitions are growing and so is the collection of spires on my worktable.
Visitors to Open Studios Cornwall will have seen me working on the flowers for this piece. Riverbank with Campion Cowparsley and Bluebells has just gone on the wall and as there are two days left of Open Studios Cornwall there is a chance for visitors to see the piece in my studio.

The final piece of art is in place for Cornwall Open Studios 2018, which begins tomorrow. Those who visit my studio can experience unfurling ferns in art and life. I shall be open 11-5 Saturday 19th to Monday 21st and Thursday 25th to Monday 28th. Cornwall is glorious with wild flowers and bathed in sunshine so there has never been a more perfect moment to visit.

Some people might sort the studio before hanging the art, but I go for reward first. Now I have the big sort.
The courtyard outside my studio if full of Spring colour and waiting for all who wish to visit during Cornwall Open Studios 2018 which begins on Saturday. I do hope lots of you will come along and see what is happening in my studio this year.
The water now has more definition and the plants are taking their final positions in this river-bank collage.
Having created the initial dye-work for the river, I am trying out the unfurling fern and mossy bank to see how the composition will work.
Ferns are unfurling all along the river bank and through the garden. Surely it is one of the most engaging sights of spring.
