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.
How great thou art
Silent night holy night
Then sings my soul
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
