Finally, this weekend there was no snow and the sun came out! Already everyone I know is feeling more bright and positive as Spring is finally arriving.
I spent some of my weekend repotting some of our houseplants into bigger pots as they were doing so well. Our patio area is a little suntrap so I decided to do this outside and get a good dose of vitamin D. I also surveyed the frost damage on my garden plants! I find caring for my collection of plants really relaxing and their shapes and colours often give me artistic inspiration.
Visiting local gardens and green spaces with one of my cameras is one of my favourite weekend things to do too. Having a wander and looking for subject matter for photos on my own is so useful for me, as it gives me some quiet time and often produces some new subject matter for my art.
Here's some of the photos I took last year at Newstead Abbey....
