drawing daisies

Well I spent the day drawing daisies and thinking about my new prints for the exhibition that we are having in march. 'We' being 6 print makers  who all exhibit at red gallery independently. I'm liking the Victorian idea of the language of flowers, ie that each flower had a meaning and collectively in a bunch could communicate to the recipient an idea or sentiment. not quite sure what my sentiments are at present!

well 48 hours of pouring rain have frusrated audrey to the point where she dug up my favourite rose bush and sat in the pot... she has now started on the flower bed beside the pot and all i can do is watch from the warm dry sanctuary of my living room.
the sore foot has now officially become very annoying and although i am trying to be good about resting i wondering whether insanity is too high a price to pay for straight bones ..

Here it is my first ever blog entry, I feel like such a novice!
Rosa will be so proud!

There isn't much to say at the moment as the reason i am writing is because I'm trapped on the couch with a foot encased in bandages. My world has shrunk to the living room and the occasional stroll around my handkerchief sized garden. I'm going to put a picture or two on here, mainly to see if i can do it! In the hope that this will become a viewing platform for interested makers of things.
