Some Spring Things
Sometimes the Slow Cloth gets a bit cerebral and a faster cloth must begin as it's Spring these Japanese taupe flowery fabrics appeal - they are so finely woven and press so neatly.
These little fritillaries have emerged in the garden this week...
You can see why they are called "Snake's Head" as the buds emerge. I like the patchwork effect on the petals!
My daughter has a delightful moment the day before the new term at school. I think this is a green veined white butterfly.
My son even tames the beauty. I love the black and white striped antennae.
...and we discover a little robin sitting upon her clutch of four eggs in an old drawer in the potting shed.
How can we not feel gratitude?
