Bliss: Glasgow in Sunshine.

For the past two day we, in Glasgow have had warmth and sunshine. It’s been utter bliss. 

Since I’ve been here I’ve made a small garden from bits and pieces from Poundland. It’s 1.5×1.0 m by 6 inches deep. 

I’ve had flowers from April and a good crop of strawberries. The star of the patio has been the poppies called Shirley’s doubles. The petal have stayed on despite the torrents of rain and wind! God Bless them.

L’objet re trouvé III

These paintings, I hope, will be rolled up somewhere. Probally in a corner.

I’ve not seen these for three or so years. They didn’t do well in that years Uni assessments. But I love the energy and authenticity they contain, with whispers to the many that contiune to inspire. Bless am I.
