Tree in my garden. I’ve been watching it like a hawk to get the first buds, now I am waiting for the blossom to arrive. It usually only lasts a few days…

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
