Garden Tools

Markmaking in lockdown. Looking closely at nature is wonderful. Here are tools I made from Rhode leaves, Bramble roots, Allium head, Magpie feather and a Hazelnut crafted by a Brown Mouse. Tied with coloured cotton. Can you see a person carrying a large fish in his net?

Freshwater Influence

Home. Evening Walk along the River Dee to the corner of the Peninsula. Views across Liverpool Bay. Silhouette of Hilbre Islands with the Point of Ayr and Snowdonia Range in the light of the setting sun. In oceanography terms this estuary is a Region of Freshwater Influence……..water, fresh, salt, heat, tide and shelf….

Time and Tide

Full moon equinox last night. Always reminds me of the ebb and flow of life like the tide. This is Song of the Sea arch at Najizal in Cornwall. A very special place … a swim in clear water.
