Just found this, what I think is a moth cocoon attached to the summerhouse window frame. It was glistening in the frosty sunshine. The outer shell looks like it has a metallic golden sheen.

On a sunny Saturday there was huge patch of bright orange and yellow nasturtiums at a friends garden. Buzzing with very busy bees I was taken by the twisted, tangled mesh of stems hiding underneath the lily pad shaped leaves. Although the natural colours of the plant are gorgeous, when cropping the images down I altered the colour to purples, turquoise and lime greens which seemed to enhance the patterns and shapes.
|I even managed to capture a busy bee at work|

Here are a few photos of my latest necklace. My opaque turquoise and ivory beads combined with transparent clear glass beads in baby blue and smoke grey. Threaded together with a mixture of complimenting glass seed beads.
This necklace and two more will shortly be arriving in my folksy shop.

Before the rains came I visited a friends home and found a beautiful rose growing up the wall in their garden it was called "sunrise".
The bud starts off a deep red copper, it then blossoms into an array of subtle pinks, oranges and yellows before reaching a dappled pinky white. The spiral shapes of the petals unfurling also caught my eye.
The perfume was also amazing!
