The musings and meanderings of a mixed media artist and yarn junkie who loves to knit,spin, crochet, make elemental figures, write and enjoy life. I try to follow the wheel of the year and enjoy each day of it. My art reflects that spiritual journey.

Walk on the wild(ish) side
Let us continue our walk through the woods shall we?
There are many paths we could take, some like this are not as easy if you have restricted mobility but nice to take a peek down.
Imagine who or what you could meet as you meander down this lane.
More apples ripening in the sun
More flowers for your viewing pleasure
the Buddhlea is flourishing here, it loves waste land and will gain a toehold anywhere it can.
there were hedges of it
Rowan berries almost ready for collection for making jelly. Excellent with venison or cheese
the plant below reminds me of one we used to take stalks of and suck, it was very sour like rhubarb and we dipped it in sugar. I don't say this is the one so don't try this at home:)
Just look at this beauty anyone know what it is?
Comfrey or knitbone an old country remedy and one plant that the bees adore.
EDITED TO ADD the yellow flower is toadflax, thank you Jane:)
