Early morning walk on the airfield in sunshine. I saw
a blackbird with a worm
oxeye daisies, gorse
spiderwebs stretched over tall grass flowers
wild carrot, skylarks, clover, red and white
marsh orchids, yellow vetch, rattlegrass, knapweed
honeysuckle, purple vetch, cat's tail, speckled wood, plantain
stitchwort, white throats, tormentil and cinquefoil
horsetail, ragged robin, yellow iris, foxglove
and bramble bushes with a promise of berries.
Back home, I painted cats, shot arrows in the field while some paint dried, fell asleep in a pool of sunshine while glue dried a little and gilded. A parcel of books from Harper Collins contained Dragon Haven and paperbacks of Dragon Keeper as well as some treats for Tom and Hannah, both of whom are devouring books.
