I love the ordinary Spring flowers - the forget-me-nots (Myosotis), the Honesty (Lunaria annua) and the Welsh Poppies (Meconopsis cambrica).
SPRING FLOWERS IN THE GARDEN
I left last year's kale plants in the ground in the hope that they would flower and the bees would like them. Yesterday one furry orange tipped bee came along and tried his best to visit every single flower before the other bees discovered it.
You can see him in the middle, slightly to the right.
THE BEE AND THE KALE FLOWERS
I took a lot of photos and this is the best. He was moving very fast.

At "Art Journal Journey" Erika is asking us to make art on the theme "In the Sky/In the Air".
I found a tiny drawing in one of my never-ending black ink sketchbooks which inspired me to make this.
IN THE AIR
And at "Moo-Mania" the theme is "Just One Word" where we are challenged to make art which must include one word.
For some reason the theme really appealed to me.
The paints and I played around for a bit and we made a blue sheep.
THE BLUE SHEEP
Hope you all have a great weekend and see you again soon.
