Dreaming of last year

This small sketch is me dreaming of ruined castles, high hills and copses of trees and churches and fields all rolled into one.
We had a wonderful trip last year and I am still loving the photos that roll past on my screen saver.
After a stinking hot day yesterday, it is back to damp and cold today and both of us have had trouble keeping awake!
The garden has had to be watered but the trees in the orchard are flowering as never before. It is so long since we have had a cool spring, although yesterdays 30 degrees C and a hot wind was a shock to the system. Really that is not so hot but we have been in the mid teens for weeks.
Not a lot to tell, we had our friends over the week end but even that was rather slow and not much done except eat, drink and chat! Very pleasant as we havent caught up for 2 years, we were overseas last time they were this way from the west.
My dog is out there barking to be fed, he has got very confused with daylight saving so it (his barking) seems to go on for much longer than it did.
I go for the MRI on my knee tomorrow so I will be interested to find out exactly what that tells me, if anything!
I am sewing and playing around with that and not drawing and painting, I must get back into some sort of routine. I have this awful feeling that Christmas will be upon me before I know it.
Here is a classic Basho haiku.
Spring air-
woven moon
and plum scent!

Good luck with the MRI Penny!

I am really loving the pages of your sketchbook! I really must post a few of mine.

I agree with Sally, Penny. And also good luck with the MRI.

Yes, you are quite right Penny - Christmas will be here before you have time to blink.
