At the weekend the sun shone and lots of people visited and chatted and walked round the garden and studio. So thank you everyone for visiting, I know that on Saturday afternoon the main road to Cambridge was closed because of a very serious road accident – so I hope your journeys home weren't too difficult.
Once again I met some familiar bloggers – on Saturday Sarah and Jon of For what is Chatteris called in after a day exploring Suffolk. They are both enthusiastic printmakers and like me they sell some of the work on Etsy and belong to Printsy: Printmakers of Etsy. And on Sunday Fiona, The Cottage Smallholder herself, drove over from her cottage – I love following her recipes and tales of her beloved 'min-pins' and the ducks hatched by Mrs Boss the bantam. All weekend the hens had attempted to accompany visitors into my vegetable garden, I warned people NOT to let the hens through the green door in the wall! But with two weekends hatching a plan, the under-gardeners spotted that Fiona was easily distracted and side-stepped her into the vegetable garden and headed straight for the lettuce and sorrel! It took some well practiced manoeuvring with the aid of a long curved stick to herd them back!
Today things are returning to normal – or are they? This morning Cliff asked me if he could move my display baskets of unframed prints and cards so that he could replace them with these . . .
. . . what are the green things on the table and what's going on? I'll put correct answers into a hat at the end of the week and the lucky winner will receive a pack of assorted cards.
