Just had to share this really cute mugshot of my partner in crime for ramblings and meanderings…..Ziggy my black wolf…..and she does really have a pair of velvety black ears hiding back there.
Early evening walk with the black wolf……..along the green lane, on the left the hills and high places of Ceredigion, on the right the spaces of Carmarthenshire…….bowing willowherb – more fluff than flower now – the last flush of pale fragrant honeysuckle and the first flush of plump blackberries. A magpie moth. Light rain on the oaks. Soft grey clouds billowing like a dandy’s wig and slipping silently across the wide skies. A young fox picking its way across the field, oblivious to us. Golden end-of-day sun through the rowan.
I’ve been reading about myself in a glossy magazine! A bit nerve-wracking, but all credit to Rachel Crowe, it’s a lovely write-up, with some great pics…check out the new October edition of Period Living magazine and turn to page 31 to see me as artisan of the month! Me, an artisan! I’ve made it at last! x
If you are anywhere near Stafford, I now have some glass curves and waves in The Shire Hall Gallery, Stafford. It’s in a lovely old building – the old courthouse – in the centre of Stafford, with ever-changing exhibitions as well as a fab shop selling designer crafts.
messing around with webstuff………..I am well-practiced in the art of procrastination
As the summer solstice approaches, here’s part of the sleeve notes from a book recently bought:
“Every summer there are a number of nights, not many, but a number, when everything is perfect. The light, the warmth, the smells, the mist, the birdsong – the moths. Who can sleep? Who wants to? Most people do, it seems. As for me, I’m on the verge of tears from happiness, and I wander around on the island till dawn and dream and think that summer nights are our most underutilized natural resource”
Frederik Sjoberg…..”The Fly Trap”
waiting for the kiln to cool so what better way to pass the time than a walk to the top of the world – Foel Drygarn – with dogs and smaller daughter on a sunny windy afternoon…..skylarks all around…and the swoosh of wind on the wings of a bird of prey as it swept low over the hilltop…..too fast to see properly what it was

As promised, this birthday I’m giving one lucky liker a present….this is the first of a series of Shoreline pendants, and not up on the website – or anywhere, in fact – yet!

So get liking and good luck! xx
golden evening hilltop….. lamb-skimming swallows…..skylark ascending…..a distant cuckoo….a land of yellow, white and green, of hawthorn and laburnum headiness. Do any other parts of the country have these glorious golden waterfalls draping the hedgerows?
