I’ve been enjoying the evening light these spring days, and finally got my hands on some poppies, only to find out how very difficult they are to photograph. (Kind of like newborns…) Sigh. Their stems make me smile, though, remind me of my children. They go their own way and follow no rules, each one individual and full of character. : )

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.
