little blue tit outside my shed

I thought I had not taken many photos over the last five months, but, looking through the camera had me pleasantly surprised....I must have been on auto pilot!

A mistake that I liked


The elder leaf dye in its pan in the greenhouse, where I left it until it
dried out.


The result, below, was greener than this picture shows, but now, months later, is close to the colour it has faded to.



from the garden....

.....memories of summer....


...and Yule...
our willow Yule 'tree'


I have been sewing leaves, collected in Cardigan on the 
September full moon, into my Moleskin.
These two were sewn in on the January full moon

 We still have LIGHT ~

and the shadows have had me dancing this month

  3. These images are stunning! The bird one is absolutely mesmerizing. And the green of the peas! And I LOVE how you have sewn the leaves onto the paper. AND your Yule tree is just the kind of Yule tree that I love (though my family has very different ideas from me in this regard).
