An artist's nature update for 2019

summer landscape in scottish borders

I can't believe it has been so many months since I last wrote a blog post. So much to do, so little time. I guess we are all in the same boat.

My last post was about the fruit last autumn. In Scotland they say that a heavy crop of berries means it will be a cold and heavy winter. Let me tell you - if last autumn's heavy fruit crops on the rowans are anything to go by - it's wrong. Although we had a lot of fruit on the rowan trees we had a very scant winter in the Borders. Not much snow, which was mighty disappointing.
