Butterfly orchids 6-3-15

Butterfly orchids in art

Butterfly orchids grow among limestone outcrops. Gardening on acid soil, I can relax in the knowledge that my future lies in cultivating orchids in my art not my garden.

My first trout 3-3-15

'Trout Stream in Spring', the first fresh water fish in my textile collages. An interesting exercise in suggestion.

Having visited the Gargano Peninsula in Italy last year I became very excited about the extraordinary array of wild orchids on hillsides strewn with limestone. I now plan series of textile collages exploring the subject.

Milkweed's particular charm is that it is fascinating from the earliest buds to the full blown flowers. I particularly like the changes in colour.
