Well as I look out the window I am drawn to the May blossom in the sun, there is some warmth in the air at last and there is a hum of insects preparing for Summer. My favourite time of year it's "Beltane" in the Celtic calender.
I have planted sweet peas and runner beans, cosmos and carrots as well as calendular, leeks, rocket and squash. I'm looking forward to eating some of my own home grown vegetables very soon.
Now I'm off to paint a lovely old oval mirror, and then later on down to view at the local auction, to see if I can hunt out any vintage furniture.

Even though the snowdrops are almost over they are still going strong on Dartmoor, crocuses, daffodils and primroses are all coming through now too. Living near the wildflowers is important to me they are always inspiration.
