👢I thought I was getting THE moon boot off this weekend but it's just not there yet.
With 11 breaks, it is looking more like 8 weeks of healing but things are going well.
I'm allowed to be out of the boot a little over the next two weeks yah!!
I drew a few flowers on my boot to cheer me up. Sharpies and the black is with a Sharpie Extreme.
Oh and thats me with one of my eye patch elixers I love making.

🌝 SUPER MOON
On Wednesday evening I went for dinner at The Entrance with friends and the beautiful Super Moon shone down upon us all on our wander home...
NEW TITLE 🌿🌸
I can't show you the art I'm working on at the moment as it is still firmly under wraps with my publisher for an upcoming title of mine but here I am working away at the linocuts. There is a very large manuscript that goes with these and I am also working diligently away on that alongside the artworks.
🌻 FLOWER SPELLS
There are a lot of lovely messages from people who have found my new books 'The Book of Flower Spells' and 'The Book of Herb Spells' and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to now continue this series with another two books coming out later this year and I'm working on the next two after that! Thank you everyone for connecting with and loving this collection of my plant spells, stories, wisdom and tips.
🌸 AROUND THE GARDEN
The last of my Cosmos. They are a legacy plant that obviously have either been here before me or they have drifted from someplace else. I love the colours and the way they delightfully dance on the late summer breezes.
🌿 IN THE GARDEN THIS WEEK
This week I am harvesting: baby eggplant, rosemary, thyme, creeping thyme, black chillies, cos lettuce, candy stripe roses, nasturtiums, Tom Thumb tomatoes, chives, radishes, cucumber.
This week I am planting: nothing the moment but I have begun to propagate a couple of fiddle leaf figs from my ridiculously high tree (mine is about 40 feet high)
This week I am working on: tidying up the vegetable garden as there are a lot of annuals that need attendance, cutting back my kangaroo paw, gladiolus and dahlias. Saying goodbye to the cosmos and zinnias.
Hope you are having a fabulous week.
bunches of love,
