Here is the van I intend to move to my place. I took this photo a couple of years ago. I found the man who owns it and I asked if it was for sale. Unbelievably he generously gave it me. He used it to move his cows around. You can't really tell but it's a gold colour, a bit shiny. The back door is one big one that once had wooden planks across. I'm hoping the chassis isn't completely rusted through. I have always wanted one and now I have somewhere to put one too. I shall probably just use it as an extra place maybe a gardening cabin. Although my plans at the moment are for quite a grand one with a little stove. They are quite versatile and have been re-purposed for all manner of things I'm sure you have spotted a few. The panels can be unbolted on the sides to make little takeaway cafés. Very popular for street food sellers in London right now. There is one used here for Brocanting. I met Emily Chalmers in hers on the way back from a holiday in France do look her up her shop is called Caravan style in London. Her van is incredibly cute, a little camper with yellow interior. Mine needs a little more imagination.

|Un Vrai Morvandieu, en route pour Paris.|
|Wee Wee in her bin lid pond.|
|Luzy street art|
|I am making the most of the sunshine. Lots of gardening and things to bring a smile. Like my old secateurs on this lovely chair.|
|I bought no linens this year. I found a few night dresses. Very few sheets around and they were quite expensive when I did see some for me anyway.|

Intriguing spirals on the sunflower, going in both directions.
|Sketching patterns of Sunflower seeds, I will probably try a mono print inspired by these circles|
|Pumpkin Spider, not sure what it is seems to have some sort of respiratory holes.|
It looks like it could be a Marbled Orbweaver.

|My little cat seemed quite ill this morning after|
|Stacked for drying and in case we need it this year.|
I'm about to embark on a big new project soon, I am off to look at something big tomorrow.
