I just noticed the beauty of this gate even though I pass by every day. I have to pass it as their is only one road out of the village. I love seeing it all overgrown. One of the things I hate is how mankind try to make everything neat & tidy & man-made looking. The hedges are cut like little boxes, the grass is cut like green carpets & the weeds are obliterated with cancer causing chemicals. My mother said when she was little the hedges were six foot & full of wild dog roses. Nowadays it is probably against health & safety. I just wish we could leave nature alone more to let the flowers grow along with the weeds!
When I have anytime, usually after ten at night when I am too tired to paint I will try & keep you updated on what we are upto.

A few years ago I started a painting of Red Campions, I only had the snail to paint but I could not bring myself to finish it. I often found the painting lying about but I didn't like it enough to finish it. Seeing all the Red Campions around the road verges I was inspired to try afresh and this time I love my painting. What a difference a few years makes!
I could not resist any longer I had to get rid of my zombie scarecrow. I have painted a head & stuck it on my painting by the magic of Photoshop. I think he looks a lot friendlier. If changing heads is good enough for Worzel Gummidge it's good enough for me!
