I photographed these poppy seed pods in my back garden yesterday evening. They’re so wonderfully designed and sculptural, delightful objects. : ) This is my 41st work for my 52 week challenge. I’m a bit behind, I think.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
