Peppa Pig

My friend Elaine (who had children the right age) introduced me to Peppa Pig a few years ago. I just love that little pig and her family – they’re all so kind to each other. Plus, they jump in muddy puddles, who can resist that?

This is a pic of my school friend Jo’s, son Leo (taken at the 2006 Eynsham Beer Festival).

I’ve had a play with the contrast and colour saturation (I do LOVE that bleu).

Gertie’s Garden

After the experience of taking Grandpa and Rowan’s house apart, it was reassuring to visit ‘Valhalla’ and find that nothing had really changed in my Grandmother’s garden. It still has lots of little paths…

…odd shaped trees….

…the woodpile we used to hide behind when playing hide and seek, or when we didn’t want to come in to bed.

But best of all the gate that leads down to the landing stage, the boat, and the river.

In amongst the rest of the flowers, I found this tulip. Bravely trying to grow through a hedge. It seemed very symbolic, but I’m not sure of what.
