English Summer Poppies

Last week seems like a blur, trying to finish work up and get ready to come away… I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday and we’ve been in England for four days now. I’m sorry I haven’t managed to pick up a brush or pencil sooner.

The weather is being very kind to us and I even got sunburned today (I guess that’s not so kind, really), and I’m really enjoying being back. We’re soaking up the sun in such a lovely bit of the country, staying in North Norfolk, and our hosts have an amazing garden.

Today I sat for half an hour and sketched a few of the masses of purple poppies they have growing out in the back garden, and I may try painting them tomorrow too.
