    1. Hi Edo-san, it’s good to hear from you and thank you for your wonderful comments. Here, it is dull and very wet β˜‚ but the spring flowers will soon be showing themselves and we will be happy to know the circle of life keeps turning πŸ’πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

    1. Dear Marina, thank you for your lovely comments πŸ™ I find drawing a difficult process and think it is because I don’t draw, or paint, enough. The words come first and then it becomes a struggle to come up with the image. I could just take a photograph but I only have my phone and even then I find it too technical (?). Winter does not lose its grip yet! Thank you for visiting my blog πŸ€—πŸŒΉπŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

      1. Whenever this happens [struggling for an image], take lots of scrap papers and loosen up. Just let your hand go wild with no thoughts holding it back. After a while you’ll see images appear like magic! πŸ˜‰ Get rid of the thoughts! Honestly, they are a nuisance and a blocker to creativity. Trust me! πŸ˜‰
        It’s my pleasure visiting your blog, always!

  1. I love the first snowdrops. They seem to remind us to keep going, that the light is returning. Nice one, Ashley. I’d forgotten it was Imbolc. February already. πŸ™‚

    1. It is really good to see the return of flowers. There are a few narcissi pushing up through the earth now and soon the warmer colours will return. February, and I’m hopeful again. Thanks for dropping in. It’s always good to hear from you! πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

    1. Hi Sharon, thank you for your wonderful comments. I’m super critical of any of my artwork so I really appreciate your comment. (I seem to have “lost” you over the last few months so now I can now connect with your blog again). It must be crocus soon and they’ll be good for the Queen Bees if there’s a warm day. πŸŒΉπŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

    1. Thank you, Lisa, for your lovely comments. It is always good to hear from you. I’ve just come in from our tiny garden and see that a few of the bulbs I planted in the autumn are pushing through as the earth begins to awaken. I hope you planted a few too! πŸŒ·πŸŒΈπŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

      1. How exciting, Ashley! I didn’t plant anything in the Fall. I have purchased my seeds for planting in June, though. (It can freeze or snow here that late in the year.) I feel we, and others who garden, belong to a brotherhood/sisterhood of Earth nurturers. Do you get that feeling as well? 🌞

  2. Thank you, Ashley for your kind wishes with such a beautiful haiku. Picture is also superb. You too have a nice spring season πŸ™πŸ’
