This is my view every evening when gathering buckets of water.

The colours in the sky never cease to amaze me. They are beautiful, the gradients far surpass our manmade efforts.

Waiting for the bucket to fill, I’d often let it overflow distracted by the view.

Sometimes it is in the simplest things in life that you can find the most pleasure.

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


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…!

This is a spread from my children’s picturebook ‘Where are the Trees?’ ???️

?Getting that Autumn feeling ?

Back inside painting… Work started on a nature inspired calender.

Slowly seeing the fruits from the summer flowers appear, food for the birds as the weather starts getting colder. ?❄️

I’m growing closer to my surroundings each day. Seeing things in nature I never noticed before. ????

Is anyone else becoming more home focused since the beginning of the epidemic? ?
