I have spent the last week being a very sick bunny and as a consequence need cheering up. So today, as I am feeling slightly more together, I started painting some sheets of watercolour paper just with random splashes of colour because I have a few half-formed ideas about a project I want to try. And also because colour has a wonderful ability to lift my spirits.
The daffs in the garden continue to bloom which inspired me (before I was laid low) to go out and photograph some of the neighbourhood cherry trees. For one glorious week or so at this time of year they are stunningly beautiful, laden with delicate white and pale pink flowers, making walking around the streets beneath them quite magical!
