After the craziness of the first 6 months of the year with Rhayader, Palnackie, the Memory House and the live show life returned to normal (whatever that is).
Time to get out into the landscape again and touch the earth and create something different.

Had a magical and wonderful weekend in Palnackie with Jim Ghedi Neal Heppleston Toby Hay and Douglas Macgregor. The gallery is an amazing place run by Edward and Lucy.A really special place. I have lots of pictures on Facebook of a weekend that will live long in my memory.

April ended with a flurry of activity preparing for Open Studios for Beltane. The weather turned cold and overcast with a few bright days.A great day wandering west of white edge was a highlight as we followed an old trackway. Nearer home part of another old way is Dark Lane.A sunny morning revealed buzzards and we could hear but not see a Woodpecker near by. We also took ourselves out west to another of our “secret places” . The countryside is quiet though. A few Lapwings we heard Curlew s but not seen them in the flesh!
