This morning I filled two more cuttings bags, and this afternoon we took them to the dump. This time, the Head Gardener only liberated a trio of terra cotta containers from a wine rack.
I spent much of the day printing and exchanging e-mails with Paul about the exhibition. The final batch of 50 completed my tally of 250 flyers.
Paul Clarke has put as much meticulous effort and skill into the hanging and display of the exhibition at The First Gallery as he did with the design of the flyers. He has made quite specific size suggestions for prints with which to adorn the walls, ranging from A2 to A6. As I Can only go to A3+ on my printer, I will need to investigate the cost of commercial printing for the one A2.
Here are some of the offerings I have sent:
This was the view through the red Japanese maple on 21st April 2014.
I made a very small crop of this gladiolus in order to position the burrowing fly;
on 14th September 2014, just a week before that one, another alighted on a colchicum.
Two days later this bee settled on an eryngium planum;
another made for this libertia on 18th May last year.
On 25th February 2015 snowdrops were in abundance.
This Red Admiral butterfly cast an intriguing shadow on 21st November 2013.
Finally, here is a tulip from 14th April 2015.
For this evening’s dinner Jackie produced perfectly baked ham, moist ratatouille, creamy mashed potato, and crisp brussels sprouts; followed by sticky toffee and ginger pudding and custard. I drank Louis Virion Costiers de Nimes 2014, and the Cook drank lemon squash.
