Greg Becker's personal visual record of the triumphs and trials of an artist, illustrator and vegetable gardener.
I know several allotmenteers who'd be surprised the pesky rabbit and squirrel got an invitation ;)
that must be quite some tea for them all to be playing so nicely!
I think Gertrude is hoping to have a civilising effect on some of her guests and at the very least to spoil the squirrels appetite (if thats possible).
I am not surprised to see everyone behaving themselves when a figure like Ms Jekyl is presiding over them!The film of you on Youtube is really good. I wish l had your talents; walking about the plot and taking sketches and being able to later convert them into wonderful illustrations is a great talent. Keep up the good work.
Thank you Trevor, I'm glad you liked the film. The producer kindly edited out the most of the shots of my shamefully untidy plot.
Hi Greg, having just stumbled upon your blog via the horticultural channel, it has given me a little boost in which to draw some inspiration from you. I now look forward to taking time out during the winter months on my plot for a spot of watercolours.From one fellow blogger to another, best wishes here.Regards, Craig.www.dykesedge.blogspot.com
A good idea Craig, but why wait till winter, summer is the time for outdoor painting. After all, as Rudyard Kipling said "Watercolours are made by sitting in the shade" or something like that.
