At last the sunshine has returned, and though I don’t think you could call it hot, certainly there’s a pleasant warmth in the air and so I’ve been able to take my work out to the summer house today. I’ve been finishing off another project for the July issue of the magazine – another trophy head – a Hare in a Hat!
Inspired by the lovely brown hares I see running and gambolling across the fields when I take Ben and Daisy to their favourite kennels. And of course the furry pair were outside with me this afternoon, “helping” in their own special way. Here’s a view of the summer house with my hare on the wall ready to have her picture taken ….
And it’s easy to spot Ben, snoozing gently on the warm slate paving. But where, I wondered, as I took this photo, is Daisy? Not far away was the answer – all tucked up in my favourite clematis and far too sleepy on this warm and drowsy afternoon to open her eyes, even just a little bit …
Naughty girl – she knows she’s not supposed to be in the flower beds! Perhaps she thought if she didn’t open her eyes I wouldn’t be able to see her?
