Finding this Spider Chrysanthemum irresistible, I have brought it into the studio and begun the cool white flowers. I seem to be moving into a white flower phase.
Just off to St Ives to hang the new exhibition at The Salthouse Gallery. I shall be open and ready to welcome visitors from noon on Saturday.
My latest textile collage 'Foxgloves and Honeysuckle Porthcurno' is hanging on the wall of the studio and will go with me to the Salthouse Gallery St Ives for my exhibition opening on Saturday.

An update on the Foxglove series. These are growing on the cliffs above Porthcurno, with that extraordinary turquoise sea below and a golden hue to the granite cliffs.
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.
