Working with the seasons- new foliage.

I have been waiting eagerly for the leaves to come on the trees so I can do some printing.

We have been out walking most days during this amazing fine spell, the river is very low.

There were swans, ducks, geese and herons nesting on the pond. Also frog spawn and lots of small fish as well as an eel in the burn.

River walkI noticed the field maple and sycamore trees had small leaves and flowers so I picked a few to eco print.

I am really enjoying working with the seasons but I think Spring is a time where it’s hard to keep up with all that’s bursting into life around me.
