A slow day. I’m sorting stuff out in the front studio, clearing away tools and materials from the building works three months ago. Not much to report, but that’s OK.
What I do manage to do is start planning the succulents garden under studio skylights – it’s one of those pleasurable jobs that never gets done, but now’s the time I think. When I fitted the skylights I left the top of the wall exposed, the main granites showing through. I liked it as a reminder of how things are made, but also thought about the succulents garden. This was before I had a real outside garden to play with of course, and that might account for the delay. But there’s also a surprise ‘pill box’ slot window to be opened up under the skylight line, which if I made it right will give a postcard-sized framed view of St Michael’s Mount, seen through the succulents in the foreground! Watch this space…
