We grew Echinacea from seed in the greenhouse this year. It has been fantastic. I love those slightly droopy whispy petals.

I have started to paint them in Oils. When I’ve a quiet moment I visit my garden Studio and there on my easel I see the Echinacea painting emerging, little by little. I am slow, I like to dream, sip tea and ponder colour and feeling of this eccentric flower. As I stand at my easel paintbrush poised I often get lost in clouds floating past or the light changing. I hear pigeons dancing on the roof and watch a curious robin staring at me from a brand of the old apple tree.

I hope to have this one ready for a charity exhibition. Back to work!
