“Welcome, Welcome”, Simon said.

Pip and Peter are welcomed into the garden… But what will happen next?

This is a little sample from my children’s picturebook, ‘Where are the Trees?’. ??

If only we had pumpkins this big to carve… ?

The possibilities are endless… A little house ? ? or maybe a pumpkin carriage! ?

What would you make out of it? I’d love to hear ?

Just to get in the mood for Halloween. ???

Just a little Halloween illustration in progress… ??

It’s nice to show a little of the process but please watch this space for the finished piece! ??

Really getting the autumn vibes now, time to light a fire and get cosy! ??☕

The neighbours’ little girl was showing off her halloween costume today… (At a distance of course). Her beautiful red hair makes her look right at home in the autumn forest. 

It’s not easy for the little ones in these times. She won’t be trick or treating this year to stay safe from Covid.

But maybe we will have to invent a new Halloween tradition! Perhaps a good witch who leaves little packages of sweets in the doorways for the children before she disappears into the night.

Let’s start a reverse trick or treat treat tradition. #reversetrickortreat


This little lady grows the biggest carrots for her donkeys with a little bit of their help of course! ?

I know the gardening season is coming to an end and we are getting the harvests in but we are already busy collecting super manure from our rescue donkeys for the garden next year. ?????

This is another little sample from the children’s book I’m working on at the moment.

Had a surprise discovery on my walk earlier today! What beauties… One even had a little hole almost like a doorway… ??‍♀️?‍♂️

I wonder if it could be a fairy house… My late neighbour used to tell me about seeing the ‘little people’, around here… I wonder what they look like…

My little dog Gyp is guarding them because she won’t share any secrets. ??

6 - Where are the Trees?

Something for the spooky season… ?

Have you ever been afraid of that strange sound in the night…

That ‘boohoooo’…

Could it be a ghost!?

G…g…GHOSTS!!! ?

Pip and Peter certainly think so…!
