Went out last night to view the street art in Chichester. Some of it was still in progress. It was great to see it, as the city is normally such a conservative place. Apparently it will stay until someone complains ... I wonder how long that will be ...?

I've been worried about My Jack Russell aging for a while now, he's definitely slowing down. Bill's 14 (98 in human years) but yesterday I wondered why I worry so much. At 4am he wanted to go out and he chased a fox into a neighbouring garden. I could hear him tearing around but I couldn't get him. He eventually came back through a hole in the hedge. Then he was up again at 7am for a walk, at 11am he visited his friend Alfie to run up and down his garden - guarding against any intruders. Another walk at 3pm and a game at 6pm. All this interspersed with several light meals throughout the day. No wonder this is him today, I wish it was me!

Another adventure with Gra, who planned a walk in a neighbouring county and again forgot the map! So we parked up and set off in the direction we thought best, only to find ourselves high up on a bleak part of the downs just as the heavens opened. We got drenched. I was not in the best of moods but I don't like to give up on a walk once we've started and I'm glad I didn't as soon the sun came out and we quickly dried off.
Coming down the hill we spotted a beautiful little church in the middle of fields so had to go and investigate. It was the 12th Century St. Hubert's Chapel at Idsworth and inside were 14th Century wall paintings. I'm so glad I didn't miss this as it hadn't been on our original route.
Walking back we got caught in the rain again but warmed up by a roaring fire with a pint and packet of crisps in The Red Lion at Chalton.

Hope everyone had a good Easter, we did a lot of walking and eating! From left to right: homemade pizza - mmm, beautiful green - euphorbia, woodland - my inspiration, soft blues - hydrangea, still needing a fire - so cold, arundel swan - brrr...

I feel very much in limbo at the moment - I think it's because Spring was nearly here and then we had snow again with more cold weather and snow forecast for the next couple of weeks. This illustration is called Spring Woodland and kind of sums up how it is here at the moment.
Also I've been really busy with work and a friend's wedding so have not been posting anything recently AND have not been visiting other blogs either. I'm hoping to remedy this soon!

I have only just started using Instagram and I'm addicted. A bit late I know and I hope I don't bore you over the next few weeks - you never know it may be a short lived addiction, a little like drawing on my ipad!
Spring was in the air yesterday when I walked around the cemetery with Bill.
