Ribbit continued......

I found this frog in one of my tub-trugs on Sunday....it rained a lot last week and the tub was filled with water. The blue plastic made it look like the frog was in a swimming pool, looked very funny....I made sure it could get out again after he had finished his lengths.

Lemon Peppers

At last my lemon chilli peppers from the Real Seed collection are ready...they are nice and hot but also lemon flavoured too. Am still waiting patiently for the Alberto's Locotos.

Inspired By Morris

Inspired By Morris
9 October - 24 December 2010

A group show of contemporary art and craft inspired by the life and work of William Morris. Over 50 London based artists have contributed work in all media- from prints and ceramics to film and photography. The exhibits will be on display alongside Morris’ own work so visitors can compare old and new and look afresh at Morris’ artistic legacy.

I am showing a new work in this exhibition entitled "Miniature Garden"

Down the stream the swans all glide;
It's quite the cheapest way to ride.
Their legs get wet,
Their tummies wetter:
I think after all
The bus is better
