24.4.11

days out instead of working


I'm easily persuaded to be outside when the weather is on summer setting and school holidays are happening around me.  We stopped at Raglan Castle in South Wales on the way back home this week.  It's great - it's rambling, ruinous and pretty precarious at the top of towers and ancient staircases.  Last time we went a reenactment society fired a cannon just as our then 3 year old history fan walked through the entrance, so he didn't make it very far ...this time, 3 years older he was disappointed that they weren't there....

New prints are coming though - early May deadlines are starting to beat the weather on my priority list and the world needs a picture of birds in pajamas...



p.s. are we allowed to ask for rain??  I'm getting tired of watering the same teeny tiny seedlings at the allotment each day - big grateful plants at the height of summer are fine as I can see the food growing but tiny specks of green that don't seem to be getting bigger....

mmm lovely! I went there when I was about 13. I had fond memories of being there.
