Have a cosmic new year

As short winter days leaves gazing at the garden out of the question I realise how much I miss my summer evenings but never fear nature is still providing a plenty.   I find gazing at the sky replaces the garden gazing as mostly it is bright at night and there are so  many interesting things to observe.  Sky gazing inspired a series of paintings which ended up becoming Christmas cards .  Each cosmic explosion naturally inspired a line from a Christmas carol and hence the unplanned Christmas card making began.

Joy to the world

And to the earth it gave great light

 

The sky garden has kept me entertained as I await the first snowdrops in the garden in January – I can already see signs as I look carefully amongst what is left of the lawn

 

Happy new year garden growers – it will all be exploding out there before you know it
