Welcome to my blog. I live in the beautiful Forest of Bowland and get to spend a lot of time outside as part of my work. I hope you will agree it's a lovely place to be and maybe come and visit the area. My website is www.elizabeth-mills.co.uk
On Thursday evening around 8 pm, at least 50 Swallows flew over the house, we hoped ours were back and would be in the barn by morning, but they all seem to have gone down to the farmyard to feed after their long journey. At least they are back. On Saturday I saw this battered looking Peacock butterfly in the garden, it must have just come out of hibernation, it seems incredible it has survived. In the hedgerows the Hawthorn leaves are starting to show a lovely refreshing green.
Below is one of my wildlife paintings which is available as a Gicleé print.
