All Around the Garden

A handful of sea shells in a bowl and some earthy garden gloves at the back door led to thumbnail sketches of gardens and gardeners, and the next advertisement from Hedge and Hogg came into focus:

with Hedge preparing the ground

and Hogg bringing in the materials

and a fairy garden under way.
The next Illustrated Fairy Gazette is also in progress, with sketches and notes to sort and refine. I think I can allow myself a little gardening time each day, for both inspiration and gratification.

"Hedge and Hogg's Garden Design" will be up on the Etsy Shop soon.

  1. Thank you so much for your recent comments.

    I just love seeing the drawings of Hedge and Hogg that evolve into your incredible watercolor paintings.

    Every time I see anything about early spring gardening, it really does make me yearn for my own tiny bit of earth for a playground.

    It will be grand getting to see your garden emerge.


  2. It is lovely to see your work in progress.

    Enjoy your garden, the sun is shining here in Britain and the garden is beckoning.
