This morning I placed an order with a local printer for the A2 copy of Jackie picking daffodils two mornings after our arrival in Downton on 1st April 2014. Rather fittingly, Paul has selected it to be the largest picture on display.
I then continued bombarding him with e-mailed suggestions for further, smaller, prints.
This frozen pond from 19th January this year could fit the bill for a semi-abstract A3.
A number of roses include this Apricot Abundance from 6th June 2014;
and Summer Wine pictured on 19th October 2015;
Absolutely Fabulous the next day,
and For Your Eyes Only and another Summer Wine on 1st November.
Further blooms include a rhododendron from 21st May 2014;
camellias from 18th
and 30th March 2014;
and myrtle embracing a shy little pink rosebud on 16th July that same year.
This being the final day of The Six Nations rugby tournament, I spent the afternoon and early evening watching the games between Wales and Italy, and Ireland and Scotland.
After this, the marinade of yesterday’s baked ham nicely matured the juices for a second sitting today. This was served with ratatouille, mashed potato, and Brussels sprouts. I drank more of the Costieres de Nimes, whilst Jackie abstained.
I am now about to watch the grand finale, between England and France.
