One of the Camellia's in our garden is out in full bloom it must think spring is here.
Isn't nature wonderful the beautiful colours in this flower would be hard to reproduce.

Things happening.

Been busy as usual.Yesterday I had a few hours with Mark Sanger taking pics of some work I have submitted for an exhibition and a lot of time nattering.It is nice to get away from my workshop for a change of company.The trouble is with having a workshop at home I spend too much time in it.Tonight I have 4 members of our local Woodturning club coming round for a hands on evening.Tomorrow night I have a meeting in Langport at the Somerset Art Works office.I have some ideas rolling round in my head mostly to do with colouring and texturing.
I have plans to make some more wall hangings in different shapes and colours.Keep an eye open on this Blog to see how they all turn out.
