Where only one name exists

Happy Easter!

Bleats from the meadow
Echoed down through the valley
Easter’s happy song

Happy Easter to Ewe all! πŸ°πŸ‘πŸ’šπŸ˜Š


Haiku: Ewe Called

Quick bleat back to base
Whilst out running my errands
Info for the flock

Anyone got a better one?

Dolphin’s Passport #haiku

Here’s a couple more pages from the #artmarks30daychallenge:

There aren’t many marks on this, I was going for the minimalist look. Quite by accident it’s rather dreamy and looks a bit from outer space.

This one is completely different and looks like a dolphin’s passport or something. I feel a poem coming on.

Dolphin’s Passport


Enough nautical miles swum

For a stamp from every sucker

On an Octopus’s tentacle.


For those of you on Instagram, here’s a few cool art journalers to follow:







The next post will be about making your own stamps with things around the house.

Happy creating!

Farmer got a sense of humour

Macro Monday: Burl or Knot?

So, does anyone know what these are called? Could it be a burlΒ or a knot?

The photo could have been more macro but I didn’t think that was as interesting. I like the surrounding wood. It looks like a bowl or a plate from a long time ago.


Has anyone seen this marking on a tree?

Have a great week!


Snow Much Fun

After some seriously weird weather we got some sledding snow yesterday. I took my two and a couple of other kids to the slopes. They had a blast. (Note to self: Take my camera out more).

Here’s some other kids playing later on. What a fun day playing with all those kids.


Today it was Sandy’s turn to play with her friend. What a hoot they had jumping around (again no camera).

Happy Friday! 🎈



That Wednesday Look


Could it be Wednesday?
Let’s all four wheel it over
the hump in the week


Ribbit Ribbit Ribbit


sun shines down on grass
first day of February
where is all the snow?

Hi folks, February is such a fresh month. It’s usually freezing here so let’s be grateful for the weird weather.

How did I get to forty without knowing you are supposed to say gribbit three times on 1st Feb. Who knew?

Anyone like to join in trying a haiku every day in Feb? No pressure. Steam might run out by Friday.

Have a great day!
