Another small watercolour of poppy seed heads and field poppy flowers, the seed heads I have to confess are from my big poppy (somnifera I think).
At least doing these small things is something I can do when I have a few minutes and is more or less keeping my hand in.
I saw a large fox in the vegetable garden this morning, heading towards my fowl house, John was out with the shot gun but coudnt find him. In broad day light, I ask you. I need a new agile dog, not the old ones who cant see hear or smell!
No wonder I keep on losing the hens.
Still damp and drizzly but the garden and spring blossom is looking magnificent, would just love a couple of blue sky days.
A day of house cleaning, and some more tidying, still more to do but it is not as bad as it was.
Another Basho Haiku, I dont like these translations as much as those in my other book.
Mirroring each other,
white narcissi,
paper screen.

Poppies are a favorite of mine, you drew them well! Hope the fox leaves your hens alone!
